At this writing I am only two days away from the Vade Mecum 
meeting with seventy-five devoted leaders among the Episcopal 
Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Carolina. I am enjoying 
the happy uplift of this experience. When two or three or seventy-five 
are gathered together in His name, it is good to be there. I am glad 
and grateful that I had the privilege. It is a continuing experience', 
in that the same climate permeates the total program of the Episcopal 
Churchwomen throughout the year. All of us enjoy the fruits. They 
are sweet and nourishing. We give thanks to God. 

We are grateful to the blessed people who contribute in so many 
ways to this symphony of prayer, and gifts, and joyful service. 

Faithfully and sincerely yours, 
Richard H. Baker 
Bishop of North Carolina

PRAYERS 




PRAYERS FOR EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 

Almighty God, our heavenly Father, bless, we pray Thee, our work for the 
extension of Thy Kingdom, and make us so thankful for the precious gift to us of 
Thy beloved Son, that we may pray fervently, labor diligently, and give liberally 
to make Him known to all nations as their Savior and their King: through the 
same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, whose love reacheth unto the world's end, ajid who didst send 
Thy blessed Son to redeem all mankind: Help us, we pray Thee so to reveal 
Thy love in prayer and work and stewardship, that by Thy spirit all nations 
and people may be baptized into one body, even as all are redeemed by one 
Savior; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

PRAYER FOR MISSIONS 

Almighty God, help us, we pray Thee, to shed abroad the light of Thy 
Church in all the world. Give us greater zeal for thy Kingdom, that we may 
offer abundantly our prayers, our work, and our gifts; so that the earth may be 
filled with the knowledge of Thy glory, as the waters cover the sea ; through 
Thy Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

FOR GUIDANCE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT 

O God, forasmuch as without Thee we are not able to please Thee, mercifully 
grant that Thy Holy Spirit may in all things direct and rule our hearts ; through 
Christ our Lord. Amen. 

PRAYER FOR HUMAN RELATIONS 

God, our heavenly Father, who hast created all men after Thy likeness, we 
beseech Thee to incline Thine ear to us as we ask Thy help in doing our duty as 
Christian citizens and as members of thy Holy Church. We acknowledge our 
many transgressions of Thy righteous law and especially our failure to see Thine 
image in all Thy children for whose sake Thy Son was content to die. Grant 
that we may follow in the steps of Him with whom there was no respect of 
persons. 

Make us ready to acknowledge the Truth as it stands written in Thy Holy 
Word. Give us courage in our thinking and honesty in our decisions. Lift 
us above self-interest and prejudice and whatsoever else may hinder us from 
a just and righteous dealing with our neighbor. Guide with Thy wisdom those 



Seventy-Eighth Annual Report 



to whom Thou hast committed the responsibility of government, that all things 
pertaining to the relationship of man with man may be settled upon the sure 
foundation of thy Holy Will as made known to us in Thy Son, Jesus Christ 
our Lord. Amen. 

— The Rt. Rev. Edwin A. Penick, D.D. 

PRAYER FOR CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 

Jesus, our Master and our friend, who claimest our service through the 
needs of our neighbors; Grant us so to see Thy image in all our fellow creatures 
that in serving mankind we may minister to Thee, the living Savior of the world. 
Grant to each one of us, that we may do our part in bringing about an order 
of society where there is no just cause for discontent or bitterness of spirit, and 
where every person may be enabled to come to the fullness of perfection for 
which he was made, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

FOR THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 

O Lord, Our Heavenly Father, we pray Thee to send forth more laborers 
into Thy harvest, and to grant them Thy special grace for every need. Guard 
and guide the workers in the field, and draw us into closer fellowship with them. 
Dispose the hearts of all women everywhere to give gladly as Thou hast given 
to them. Accept from grateful hearts our United Thank Offering of prayer, 
and gifts and joyful service; and bless it to the coming of Thy Kingdom, through 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Accept, O Father, this joyful sacrifice of thanksgiving and praise, and bless 
these gifts to the setting forward of Thy Kingdom; that as we have gratefully 
received the benefits Thy bounty has bestowed, so we may cheerfully share 
them with Thy children in all the world ; for his sake whose life and death 
and rising to life again were a song of praise to Thee, Thou Most Holy, 
our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen. 

FOR CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

God, who hast sent Thy beloved Son to be unto us the Way, the Truth, 
and the Life ; grant that we, looking unto Him may set forward the teaching 
power of Thy Church, to the nurture of Thy children, the increase of Thy 
Kingdom and the glory of Thy Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

THE PRAYER FOR THE SUPPLY WORK 

Almighty God, who hast taught us by Thy Son, Jesus Christ, that it is more 
blessed to give than it is to receive, look with favor, we beseech Thee, upon the 
supply work of Thy Church, especially in this Diocese. Touch our hearts with 
compassion for the poor, the sick, and homeless, and make us strong to lift their 
burdens with our ready gifts and service; through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen. 

PRAYER FOR THE THOMPSON ORPHANAGE 

Almighty God, who art the Father of the fatherless, send Thy blessings upon 
the Thompson Orphanage, instituted in Thy name. Give patience and wisdom 
to the officers, teachers and matrons of this home, that they may faithfully 



Episcopal Churchwomen 



discharge the duties committed to their charge. Let the boys and girls grow 
in grace and earnestness, day by day. Strengthen their bodies, enlighten their 
minds, purify their hearts and sanctify their wills. Bless all who have contributed 
to this institution, and raise up, we pray Thee, a never-failing succession of 
benefactors whose names may be perpetuated through all generations, as a blessed 
memory, and their good deeds be accepted; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



FOR THE EVERY MEMBER CANVASS 

God our Father, who providest for Thy children in advance of their needs, 
bless we pray the work of our Every Member Canvass, and grant us all to 
share in it with glad and willing hearts for the sake of Thy Kingdom, through 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



FOR DIOCESAN MISSIONARIES 

O Lord and Heavenly Father, without whom we can do no good thing, but 
with whose help even Thy little ones go forth as the mighty, we beseech Thee to 
prosper the work of all Thy missionaries, wherever they may be (and especially 

the work of Thy servant ). Grant them the wisdom to know 

and the strength to do Thy will, and bless them with the hope and consolation 
of Thy heavenly promises, for the sake of Thy Son, Our Savior, Jesus Christ. 
Amen. 



FOR PERSONNEL 

Our Father, if it be Thy will, put it into the heart of some young man or 
young woman of this parish to choose one of the many vocations within the 
Church for his or her life work, whether it be in our own land or overseas. 
We pray Thee help each one of us, whatever our calling, to practice it as 
becomes a Christian in Thy name and with Thy guidance. Amen. 



NOONDAY PRAYERS 

Blessed Savior, who at this hour didst hang upon the Cross stretching forth 
Thy loving arms; grant that all mankind may look upon Thee and be saved. 
Amen. 

Blessed Lord, inspire our hearts and the hearts of all men everywhere with 
the love of God and of our fellowmen, that we may be worthy of world peace. 
This we pray in Jesus' name. Amen. 



FOR WORLD PEACE 

Almighty God, from whom all thoughts of truth and peace proceed; kindle, 
we pray Thee, in the hearts of all men the true love of peace, and guide with 
Thy strong and peaceful wisdom those who take counsel for the nations of the 
earth, that in tranquility Thy Kingdom may go forward, till the earth shall be 
filled with the knowledge of thy love; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



Seventy-Eighth Annual Report 



FOR CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

Lord Jesus Christ, Who art the Light of the World, pour out, we beseech 
Thee, upon all Thy servants Thy Holy Spirit of Wisdom and understanding 
that they may know the hope of Thy calling, the riches of Thine inheritance 
in the saints, and the greatness of Thy power to usward who believe. More 
especially we pray Thee to direct and prosper the Church Periodical Club that 
in all its prayer and labor it may be enabled to make the light of Thy glory 
shine forth in the dark places of the earth. And do Thou of Thy mercy and 
grace stablish Thy Church in the truth of Thy Gospel, who livest and reignest 
with the Father and the Holy Spirit ever One God, world without end. Amen. 

FOR USE BEFORE AND AT THE TIME OF THE ELECTION 
OF OFFICERS 

O Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can enable us to fulfill 
the Will of God, teach us, we pray Thee, the dignity of our work as churchwomen, 
and give us grace to choose as our leaders those whom Thou dost call to Thy 
faithful service. To those so chosen give a spirit of reverence in the exercise 
of their office, and to all of us a deep sense of our obligation in the discharge 
of every duty, to do all to the glory of God through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 

BENEDICTION 

May the blessings of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy 
Spirit, rest upon us and upon all work and worship done in His name. May 
He give us light to guide us, courage to support us, and love to unite us, 
now and forevermore. Amen.

12 Seventy-Eighth Annual Report 

SERVICE OF 

INSTALLATION OF OFFICERS FOR THE 

EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 

Let those who have been elected stand before the Bishop and then let him say: 
It is right and fitting that those who have been duly elected as Officers of the 
Episcopal Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina, should be formally received 
and admitted into their respective offices in your presence; and that we should 
ask the blessing of God upon them for their support and guidance in the per- 
formance of the duties which you have laid upon them. 

O Lord, save these Thy servants. 
Who put their trust in Thee. 
Send them helD from the holv place, 
And evermore mightily defend them, 
Lord, hear our prayer. 
And let our cry come unto Thee. 
Let us pray. 

Our Father . . . 

Direct us, Lord, in all our doings, with Thy most gracious favour, and 
further us with Thy continual help ; that in all our works begun, continued and 
ended in Thee, we may glorify Thy holy name, and finally by Thy mercy, 
obtain everlasting life; Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, the giver of all good gifts; give Thy Grace, we humbly 
beseech Thee, to these Thy servants who have been chosen to serve Thee in 
the special work for which they have been selected; grant unto them zeal and 
earnestness in the performance of their office ; wisdom and strength to meet each 
day their task ; and love in the doing of it ; and give them the vision to see their 
opportunities for service, to the glory of Thy great name and the benefit of 
Thy Holy Church ! Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Bless us, O God, with the vision of Thy Being and Thy Beauty, that in the 
strength of it we may work without haste and without rest; Through Jesus 
Christ our Lord. 

I receive and admit you to the office of Be 

faithful, zealous, sincere and humble in all your tasks, and may the Grace of the 
Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God our Father and the guiding fellowship 
of the Holy Spirit be with you evermore. Amen. 

BENEDICTION 

The Father, Son and Holy Ghost bless, preserve and keep you, in your work, 
in your worship, this day and always, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



Episcopal Churchwomen 13 



OBJECTIVES FOR THE BRANCHES OF EPISCOPAL 
CHURCHWOMEN DIOCESE OF NORTH CAROLINA 

The theme of our Annual Meeting held at Christ Church, Raleigh, was 
Christian Responsibility. This was planned to give those elected to represent 
our branches an opportunity to lookj at these words from many angles. Con- 
tinuing this theme for the coming year and for our special objectives we will 
ask you: 

I. To so plan and emphasize the corporate life of the Churchwomen of your 

branch that all they do in worship, education and action may be an ex- 
pression of Christian fellowship and a special way to consecrate all our 
gifts and all our work in the service of our Lord. 

II. To so fully understand the Program of the whole Church in the world, 

nation, diocese and parish that participation and stewardship may be 
intelligent, wholehearted and sacrificial. 

III. To be aware that changing patterns of organization bring new emphasis 

of responsibility for chapter officers so the planning for participation in 
all fields of service will include a larger number of women. 

IV. To so examine and clarify the actual duties of every branch Executive 

Board for these specific details: 

First: Time consuming business should be strictly limited in General Meet- 
ings but also please note carefully that all policy making decisions 
should always represent the wishes of the whole branch. 

Second: It is important to give to every member of the branch an oppor- 
tunity to share in the adoption of the Branch Budget, and we 
urge you to be equally careful to explain the Diocesan Budget. 

Third: To insure sustained interest in programs and projects it is only 
fair to see that all planning in this area represents the thoughful 
study of a representative committee, rather than the ideas of any 
individual. 

V. Please note also that many branches are planning to have fewer General 

Meetings. This is for the definite purpose to provide more time for more 
women to accept specific responsibilities to serve her branch. (A) Chapter 
work. (B) As a representative for her Church in Community activities. 
(C) In the Parish: Church School, Altar Guild, Young People, Church 
Housekeeping, Developing Parish Fellowship. (D) More time to attend 
the regular services of worship in the Church. 

VI. To make no concessions to any pressures to put less emphasis upon the 

missionary program of our Church.

16 Seventy-Eighth Annual Report 



THE PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS 

It is a real joy and privilege to welcome you to this Seventy -Eighth Annual 
Meeting. May it prove to be a happy and rewarding time and deepen our 
awareness of the many areas where as Churchwomen we have a Christian 
Responsibility. 

I would like to share with you some of the ways, events and places where 
it has been my duty, privilege and great joy to serve as your representative. 
I reported to the Diocesan Convention last May as to our change in name and 
something regarding our future planning. During the summer I attended Vade 
Mecum, the Kanuga Adult Conference and was a member of the first Church 
and Group Life Laboratory, held for the Lay People of the Church. I was 
privileged to participate in the Service of Installation of Bishop Baker as Bishop 
of the Diocese. I attended the meeting of the Province of Sewanee Churchwomen 
and Executive Board Meeting in Greenville. Many branches have invited me 
to share in their programs, board meetings, and chapter meetings. The student 
vestry of Saint Mary's House, Woman's College, U. N. C. have let me share 
their Penick Lectures with them. Saint Augustine's College has invited me to 
their campus many times. I have visited the Thompson Orphanage and attended 
their Board Meetings. I cherish my membership on the Executive Council 
and note with deep satisfaction the work of the departments of Missions and 
Promotion ; I am a member of these departments. 

In our factual reports you will note that there are 100 Branches listed. Of 
this number two have definitely disbanded, four have not been active, and there 
are three new branches. Saint Stephen's, Durham, is almost a year old and 
one of the most alive groups in the Diocese. All Saints', Sedgefield, is growing 
and Saint Christopher's, Garner, just beginning. With changing conditions 
in the world around us it is inevitable that there will come a time when the 
only sensible and practical thing to do is to close a branch and hope that every 
member of that branch will find usefulness in some other branch, but let us 
be very sure we know everything has been done. There were twelve branches 
that raised their pledges and six reduced them. With the total Diocesan budget, 
specials, United Thank Offering, Church Periodical Club, Supply contributions 
etc., there appears a total of $70,274.00 for the year. The entire "Specials" 
fund is not in any way a realistic figure because we know many gifts of money 
are sent direct for these funds rather than through the Diocesan Treasurer. 
In local activities it is impossible to estimate any figure but it is generally 
considered conservative to say a much larger expenditure for the local budget 
is necessary than goes for outside purposes. It is a part of our constitution 
as well as a tradition of many years standing that as a diocesan organization 
the budget is carefully divided equally between funds for outside and funds 
for inside the diocese, and I commend it to every district and branch. 

As "Churchwomen" in name this is our first birthday and for a little while 
I shall ask you to think seriously and prayerfully with me to see if we have 
kept the best of the past without attempting to live in it, to see if in the 
present we are serving our day and generation with full awareness of the 
needs of the world to know the God we love and believe in ; to see if the 
planning we are doing today will make good sense for tomorrow. 

For the best of the past and also one of the areas of greatest growth today: 
We are glad to note a greater emphasis upon our worship together. We have 
many, many people to thank for their efforts to promote and make possible 
all the things that have contributed to this part of our life that we feel has 
added depth and meaning to the other areas of our concern. Our Chairmen 
of Worship in the past and also today in the diocese, districts, and branches 



Episcopal Churchwomen 17 



have planned and worked to see that this was always foremost in our thinking. 
Our clergy have given generously of their time and thoughtfulness to not only 
lead our Quiet Days, but to help all of us find new strength in prayer groups 
and Bible study. Many women have expressed the feeling that especially here 
nothing has been lost but each year something has been added. In our diocesan 
organization in districts, in branches, and in chapters, we are learning that 
through our worship, our study, action and giving may become a larger part 
of our life together. 

The United Thank Offering — this is one of the great things of the past and 
we continue to cherish its meaning and comfort and are grateful for its 
great usefulness in serving the program of the whole church in almost unlimited 
ways. There has been no turning back here and a steady hopefulness to 
interest more women everywhere to share its great message. 

There are few offices in the Churchwomen's group everywhere that do not 
have as their major concern what has always been the real and motivating 
purpose of much of what we do — the study of and the giving to Missions — 
until the year 1919 as the Woman's Auxiliary to the Board of Missions this 
was what we did. With the organization of the National Council and our 
acceptance of the desire to serve the whole program of the whole Church, 
we learned to include needs at our doorstep as well as those in faraway countries. 
Our treasurers do much more than prepare statements and collect money and 
keep books. They want us to be aware of what happens to the money they 
receive and then send out. Our secretaries of Christian Education help us 
plan the most effective ways to learn the things we should know. Our secre- 
taries of Supply plan for us to work for the special needs of our Mission 
hospitals, schools. Our chairmen of Missions make our work more personal 
by helping us keep in touch with our missionaries. Our secretaries of Christian 
Social Relations remind us of the necessity for keeping in touch with what 
is happening around us. Our Church Periodical Club work is active both 
here in providing periodicals to church workers in isolated areas, and in pro- 
viding books for our Mission Seminaries. We have added to the old way 
of studying missions, and we believe it will increase our feelings of closeness 
to all that goes on in our missions around the world. 

In addition to what the women of the Church have felt such a real res- 
ponsibility for in the field of Missions, we believe they will lend their particular 
support to an idea known as the Companion Diocese and Mission Field Pro- 
ject. This project will be presented to the Diocesan Convention for its con- 
sideration. In the meanwhile we might learn more of the possibilities such 
a Companionship plan would entail, and if we feel it is a good way to have 
our diocese share more completely in the world wide mission of the church, 
say so. The committee appointed by the Bishop to study the plan is Mrs. 
James L. Godfrey, Mr. L. L. Shook, and the Reverend Floyd W. Finch, Jr. 

I think you should know that the women you have elected to serve as your 
Diocesan Officers, those that serve through accepting appointment to office, 
and your District Chairmen make up a strong and very active Executive Board. 
The interest and enthusiasm of this group of women is not only inspiring, it is 
the reason we are active and alive. Each year as the board changes, I always 
wonder how we will get on without the ones who leave, but what really happens 
is they never really leave for their influence is so wonderfully reflected in their 
own branches. It is a joy and great privilege to work with such a group. 

Throughout the whole Diocese there has been a well directed effort to 
strengthen each district organization. District Board Meetings are becoming 
not only more frequent but in most instances much better attended. Our 
District Chairmen and officers are working to find ways to channel interest,

knowledge and to direct action, so now the emphasis must come at the branch 
level in order that each member of every parish and mission may know and 
understand what we do as Episcopal Churchwomen here in the Diocese, in 
the Province, and in the World. 

It is, perhaps, the most valuable thing the Diocese has done in years, that 
we have begun the study of the Christian Family of today, lead and emphasized 
by Bishop Baker. It has already affected a great deal of our thinking and 
shown the need for a continuing study of our own lives and for a greater 
concern that the Church and the Churchwomen in their turn, may recognize 
in a greater fullness of understanding the whole life of every man, woman, 
and child. At no time in history has the Church offered a greater challenge to 
its men and women than it does today as it says in all seriousness, "You are 
the Church — You make the Witness of your Church and Your God every 
day in every area of your living and yet with equal clearness the Church tells 
us to come, first, ourselves to God, then to offer back to him that which we 
have received and are — that He may use this and us — remembering too, with 
the brotherhood of Saint Barnabas that God does not choose those that are 
fit but rather that He fits those whom he chooses.

sented and extended greetings to the Episcopal Churchwomen. 

Mrs. David G. Welton, Chairman of the District of Mecklenberg, presented the 
Reverend Moultrie Moore who spoke on our Diocesan Institutions. The need 
exists for the Diocese of North Carolina to make a good witness through its 
action and concern for the deplorable situation at Good Samaritan Hospital in 
Charlotte, its awareness of changing child-care trend and their meaning to Thomp- 
son Orphanage, its financial support of Saint Mary's and Saint Agustine's where 
young Churchwomen are being nurtured, its interest in Sewanee and Kanuga, and 
its informed acceptance of the challenge to be met in establishing the Episcopal 
Home for the Ageing. 

The President presented Mrs. David A. Young, General Chairman for the 
Annual Meeting, who explained the plans for lunch. 

Following the lunchtime recess, the meeting reconvened at 2:15 P. M. with 
the singing of Hymn 27Q. Mrs. M. E. Nellums, Representative from the Pro- 
vince of Sewanee, then addressed the meeting. She described the work done 
by and through the General Division of Women's Work of the National Council. 

The Chairmen of the Eight Districts illustrated their discussion of "A Look 
at Our Responsibility" by the use of a large map of the state of North Carolina. 
This map of North Carolina showed the areas of the three dioceses in the state

elect, Secretary of Christian Social Relations, Secretary of Supply, and Represen- 
tative on the Executive Council. There being no nominations from the floor, 
it was moved and seconded in each instance that the Secretary be instructed 
to cast an unanimous ballot for those on the slate. In each case, the motion 
carried; the Secretary cast the ballot; and the slate presented by the Committee 
was adopted. 

The President explained that in the case of the Representative on the Execu- 
tive Council, the Episcopal Churchwomen make the nomination for this office, 
but the election is by the Diocesan Convention. 

Mrs. Chandlee read the nominations of her committee for delegates to the 
Provincial Meeting to be held in Memphis, Tennessee, in November: 

Mrs. T. P. Thomas Mrs. H. F. Forsyth 

Mrs. James L. Godfrey Mrs. S. W. Easty

for Alternates to the Provincial Meeting as follows: 

Mrs. James McKee Mrs. Matt Wall 

Mrs. Allen A. Surratt Mrs. John B. Crudup 

Mrs. Chadwick P. Smith Mrs. Lula H. Robinson 

The President called for nominations from the floor. There being none, it

unanimous ballot for the slate presented by the Nominating Committee as alter- 
nates to the Provincial Meeting. The ballot was cast by the Secretary. 

The Reverend James R. Fortune was introduced and described "Our Ministry 
to the Deaf". Three members of his choir at Ephphatha Episcopal Church signed 
the Hymns "Go Forward Christian Soldiers" and "Breathe On Me, Breath Of 
God" and the Twenty-third Psalm. 

Mrs. Young, for the hostess branch, invited those attending to enjoy refresh- 
ments on the church lawn following the business session. She also extended 
an invitation to all present to attend the breakfast in the Parish House after 
the celebration of Holy Communion the following morning. 

The meeting recessed until 8:00 P. M. 

At the service of Evening Prayer, Bishop Baker was assisted by the Reverend 
W. H. R. Jackson, the Reverend James M. Dick. The Reverend John A. Gray 
preached the evening sermon on "Our Ecumenical Responsibility". 

On April 27th the celebrant at the 7:30 A. M. service of Holy Communion 



22 Seventy-Eighth Annual Report 



was the Right Reverend Richard H. Baker. He was assisted by the Reverend 
George B. S. Hale, the Reverend 0. B. Eddleton, the Reverend James D. Beckwith. 
The United Thank Offering was presented and prayers were offered for those 
members of the Episcopal Churchwomen who had died since the last Annual 
Meeting. 

The meeting reconvened at 0:45 A. M. with the opening prayers led by the 
Reverend Albert Sidney Newton, Assistant Rector of Christ Church. 

Mrs. Herbert S. McKay, Secretary of College Work and Personnel, read excerpts 
of letters from Miss Andree Carter of Greensboro whom the Diocesan Fund 
for Women in Church Work is assisting in her preparation for full-time work 
for the church. Next year $400.00 of the fund, made up of the Ember Wednesday 
(in September) offerings, will be used for Miss Carter's education as she has 
been awarded a scholarship from Fordham University for study in the field of 
Social Service. She will live at Windham House. 

Mrs. McKay presented the Reverend Joseph N. Green, Jr., chaplain at Saint 
Augustine's College who told of the work being done on the college campuses, 
not only with the students but also with the faculty and graduate students. 
He urged continued and increasing support of this program. 

Mrs. R. H. Lee, Director of the Episcopal Churchwomen's Conference at 
Vade Mecum on June 12-17, announced that the theme of the conference will 
be "A Field for Toil and Faith and Hope" and that a full and enriching program 
has been planned to make that theme a reality in the branches whose officers 
take advantage of the help offered there. 

It was announced that Mrs. John Clayton Smith of Raleigh will be recom- 
mended to the Diocesan Convention as trustee on the Kanuga Board, succeed- 
ing Miss Sylbert Pendleton. The report on Kanuga was given by the Reverend 
L. Bartine Sherman, Rector of Saint Philip's, Durham, and member of the 
Board of Trustees. He urged attendance at the Adult, Family, and Christian 
Education Conferences; also, he expressed the gratitude of the Board toward 
those individuals and those parishes who have contributed funds toward the 
physical needs of the Privincial Conference center. North Carolina at present 
only contributes one-third of its fair share to Kanuga. 

Mrs. Walter H. Bade reported on the Radio and Television work and it 
was announced that she is being succeeded by Mrs. M. Garnett Saunders of 
Winston-Salem as Chairman of this Special Committee. Mrs. Bade and her 
husband are to be working this year as the Diocesan team to promote the 
new church magazine, THE EPISCOPALIAN. 

The Chairman of the State Legislative Council Committee, Mrs. Matt Wall, 
presented the tentative legislative program of the State Legislative Council 
for 1961. She pointed out that the third item on the agenda is one that the 
Episcopal Churchwomen introduced concerning capital punishment. She an- 
nounced that each item would be read, discussed, and voted upon by ballot. 
The items were as follows: 

WIDOW'S SUPPORT 

If a husband dies without a will, all of his personal property including bank 
accounts, is tied up while his estate is being settled. However, his widow may 
petition for an allotment of $750 for one year's support for herself and for 
an additional $250 support for one year for each of their children under 15 
years of age. These sums constitute a first claim upon the personal property 
of the husband ahead of the claims of all creditors, including funeral expenses. 
These amounts are obviously insufficient to support a widow and her children 
for one year under present day living costs. The amount of these allotments 
for one year's support should be substantially increased and the age of children 



Episcopal Churchwomen 23 



eligible for these allotments should be raised to 18. Most children of IS, 16, 
and 17 are still in school. 

Under our law an alternate formula is available for the allotment of a widow's 
year's support. However, it is discretionary in its application and does not 
apply to the instances when the widow is most likely to need a substantial 
year's support, namely, when her husband's estate is insolvent or when her 
husband's income has been substantially reduced in the three years before his 
death. 

The most direct way to attack this problem is to leave the alternate formula 
unchanged and to provide for increases in the mandatory allotments. 

PROVISION FOR SAFE TRANSPORTATION AND PROTECTION 
OF MIGRANT WORKERS 

Each year approximately 12,500 agricultural migrant laborers are brought 
into North Carolina to provide a necessary service in harvesting crops. Many 
of them are transported on State highways in crowded and unsafe vehicles. 
One disastrous result was the tragic accident in this state a few years ago in 
which 20 migrant workers were killed. 

To permit the transportation of human beings in unsafe vehicles operated 
sometimes by irresponsible drivers invites such tragedies and presents a safety 
hazard for other citizens traveling on the highways. Our laws should provide en- 
forceable safety regulations. This is one step toward meeting the community 
problems associated with the use of migrant labor, such as day care and edu- 
cation of children, sanitation, medical care, housing, and financial need. 

AUTHORIZATION FOR A COMMISSION TO STUDY A REVISION OF THE 
LAWS RELATING TO CAPITAL PUNISHMENT 

The State Legislative Council thinks the time has come to request the Legis- 
lature to authorize a commission to study the abolishment of capital punishment 
in North Carolina for the following reasons: 

1. There is great inequality in the application of Capital Punishment. 

2. Where the death penalty is used there is always the risk of executing the 
innocent. 

3. Statistics prove that execution does not act as a deterrent to crime. 

4. When the State takes a life it becomes guilty of the very crime it condemns. 

5. More convictions and fewer delays are possible without capital punish- 
ment. (It often takes a long time to impanel a jury in a capital case 
because so many prospective jurors are opposed to capital punishment. 
Also juries are reluctant to apply it.) 

6. Society is amply protected by a sentence of life imprisonment. 

MODERNIZATION OF RESIDENCE LAWS 

Much human hardship results from the inability of needy individuals and 
families to meet residence requirements as denned in law. As our society be- 
comes more mobile, individual problems become more acute. To be eligible 
for emergency financial help from public funds — whether for food, shelter, or 
medical — the person must have lived in North Carolina for one year. Because 
of residence laws all cases of need must be checked for residence, a time-con- 
suming and expensive administrative procedure. 

The Governor's Conference, the Department of Health, Education, and Wel- 
fare, and many national organizations are on record as supporting either elimi- 
nation of residence requirements for health and welfare services for needy 
people or a system of interstate compacts, based on legislation, to take care 
of the problem. States would not have significant increases in case loads as 
a result of these modernizing steps. For example, in New York State, which 



24 Seventy-Eighth Annual Report 



floes not have any residence requirements, only two per cent of the public 
assistance cases have lived in the State less than one year. 

North Carolina counties face increasing problems because the costs of emer- 
gency financial help are borne entirely by the counties. Modernizing residence 
laws would lead to State and Federal sharing of those costs. 

LICENSING OF DAY CARE FACILITIES 

Day care provides supplemental family care for the children of working 
mothers from infancy to school age. It provides for more of the young child's 
waking hours than does its own family. Thus day care becomes crucial in 
terms of the child's physical and social development. 

Children under six years of age, away from their own homes during the 
working day, are in just as great or even greater need of protective care than 
older children. Yet many very young children are cared for in unlicensed day 
care facilities, subject to such hazards as over-crowding, too few adults to 
care for the number of children, lack of sanitary inspections, lack of medical 
inspections, fire hazards, inadequate meals, poorly planned programs, etc. 

The State Board of Public Welfare licenses more than 250 facilities which 
meet reasonable standards, but a stronger law is needed to require compliance 
by all day care operators. Records of the State Board reflect grave dangers and 
actual harm to children when such standards are not met. Licensing gives pro- 
tection to the children, to their parents, and to the day care operators. 

Each item was voted on by ballot ; the ballots were collected and counted by 
the Elections Committee. All items carried, but 3 voters abstained for need 
of further study and 12 abstained as an expression of opposition to belonging 
to the Legislative Council. 

Mrs. Don Blanton, Chairman of the Resolutions Committee, read the following 
recommendation from the Executive Board of the Episcopal Churchwomen: 

Recognizing the need for the care of older persons, as evidenced by the sum 
of $1000.00 in the budgets of 1959, 1960, and 1961, the Executive Board of 
the Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Carolina recommends the 
adoption of a resolution assuring the Diocese of its interest and support in the 
securing and operation of the proposed Home (for the Ageing) and the establish- 
ment of other homes as may be needed in the future. 

Mrs. Blanton moved the adoption of such a resolution; it was seconded and 
carried. 

The resolution from the Episcopal Churchwomen asking the General Assembly 
of North Carolina to abolish Capital Punishment was read in its entirety by 
Mrs. Blanton after which she moved the adoption of the Resolution. It reads 
as follows: 

1. WHEREAS the General Convention of the Episcopal Church, meeting at 
Miami in 1958, passed a resolution opposing Capital Punishment, and 

2. WHEREAS the Department of Christian Social Relations of this Diocese, 
concerned with the practice of Capital Punishment in the State of North Caro- 
lina, proposes that a similar resolution be taken by The Diocesan Convention, 
and The Annual Meeting of Episcopal Churchwomen, and 

3. WHEREAS such a Resolution is action in support of the item concerning 
Capital Punishment on the Tentative Legislative Program of the S. L. C, which 
was originated by the Episcopal Churchwomen through their representation to 
this Council, and 



Episcopal Churchwomen 25 



4. WHEREAS criminologists concur in the belief that those who commit 
capital crimes are limited in responsibility by chronic or temporary emotional 
or mental disorders, and the more heinous their crimes, the more these people 
need help from society rather than its retribution, and 

5. WHEREAS statistics compiled abroad and in various states in our country 
reveal that Capital Punishment does not affect the homocide rate; leading to 
the inescapable conclusion that Capital Punishment does not act as a deterrent 
to murder, and 

6. WHEREAS those murderers not executed but sentenced to life imprison- 
ment have proved far less dangerous to the prison community when serving time, 
or to the outside world if paroled or pardoned than are many other classes 
of prisoners who are regularly released after serving shorter periods of im- 
prisonment, and 

7. WHEREAS statistics point strongly to the conclusion that wronged in- 
dividuals do not take "justice" into their own hands to compensate for their 
states not having Capital Punishment, and 

8. WHEREAS the practice of Capital Punishment sets an example of violence 
to its citizenry, and 

9. WHEREAS stripped to its essentials, the Death Penalty stands as a 
symbol of terror, of cruelty, and irreverence for life, and 

10. WHEREAS there is a great inequality in the application of Capital 
Punishment, its victims being drawn from the economically poor without the 
influence of social prestige or without the power of those criminals protected 
by crime syndicates, and 

11. WHEREAS where the Death Penalty is used there is always the risk 
of executing the innocent, and 

12. WHEREAS society's negation of Christian love and forgiveness through 
the practice of Capital Punishment amounts to a corporate violation of the 
Spirit of Christ, for which each individual is responsible, 

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Annual Meeting of the 
Episcopal Churchwomen of North Carolina, ask the General Assembly of North 
Carolina to abolish Capital Punishment in this state. 

Mrs. Blanton's motion was seconded and much discussion followed. Mrs. 
Francis O. Clarkson asked that a motion to table the resolution be passed and 
that the resolution previously passed for the commission to study the abolishment 
of Capital Punishment stand as the witness of the Episcopal Churchwomen on 
this subject at this time. Her motion was seconded and passed. 

Miss Jessie Pickens, as Chairman of the Finance Committee announced that 
the evening offering amounted to $169.79 and would be divided between the 
Reverend Robert Grumbine's "Operation Children's Safety" in Sitka, Alaska, 
and the needs of Saint Andrew's School in Tennessee as outlined by Mrs. Ethel 
Byerly Simmons former missionary to Liberia and a native of Cooleemee, North 
Carolina. Mrs. M. E. Motsinger, Jr., United Thank Offering Custodian an- 
nounced that the offering at Holy Communion on April 27th amounted to 
$171.89 bringing the total Spring Ingathering to $12,000.18. 



26 Seventy-Eighth Annual Report 



Miss Jessie Pickens, Treasurer, explained the allocation of the 1959 surplus 
as follows: 

Outside Diocese — Nuclear Reactor, Saint Paul's University, Japan $313.61 

Inside Diocese — Saint Christopher's Mission, Garner, N. C 213.60 

Chimere, Consecration Gift, Bishop Coadjutor 100.00 

Total of 1959 Surplus $627.21 

She moved that the proposed allocation as recommended by the Executive 
Board be accepted. The motion was seconded and carried. 

Miss Pickens presented the proposed budget for 1961 item by item. She 
moved that the section of the budget proposed for disbursements Outside the 
Diocese be adopted. The motion was seconded and carried. Miss Pickens 
moved that the section for disbursements Inside the Diocese be adopted. This 
motion was seconded and carried. She then moved that the proposed budget 
for Administration be adopted. The motion was seconded and carried. 

Miss Pickens read the recommendation of the Executive Board for the In- 
tercessory Offerings for the coming year as follows: 

Feast of the Epiphany — January 6 Jocelyn Gordon 

Ember Wednesday — September Diocesan Fund to Train Women for Church Work 

Miss Pickens then made the motion that the entire budget as presented be 
adopted. The motion was seconded and carried. 

Mrs. Melville Prongay of Saint Paul's Church in Winston-Salem, Chairman 
of the Committee on Findings and Courtesy, presented the report of that com- 
mittee. The report was accepted. 

The President announced that the next Annual Meeting will be in the Church 
of the Holy Comforter, Charlotte. She also announced that the 1962 meeting 
will be in Saint Andrew's, Greensboro. 

The President expressed her own appreciation for all that the members of 
Christ Church had done to make the 1960 meeting a success. She then pre- 
sented Bishop Baker who installed the newly elected officers. 

Following the delivery of the Bishop's Message and the benediction, the 
meeting adjourned after the singing of a closing Hymn 263.

COURTESY AND FINDINGS 

On behalf of the delegates and visitors to the Seventy-eighth Annual Meeting 
of the Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Carolina we extend 
sincere thanks to all who have made this gathering one to remember. 

First, our thanks to Christ Church for its charm and serenity in the midst 
of the busy life of this capitol city. Its secluded church-yard was a beautiful 
setting for the social hour that ended a busy day. 

To those who so graciously took us into their homes go our most heartfelt 
thanks, for we know from experience that many of them also served in other 
capacities to work out with quiet efficiency the details of such a meeting. 

Our thanks also to the women of the First Presbyterian Church for serving 
yesterday's attractive lunch. 

We were made aware of our Christian Responsibility by the vivid description 
of the General Division of Women's Work of the National Council; by the 
summary of the work of the Diocesan Officers and District Chairmen; by the 
challenging discussion of our Diocesan institutions; by the ever-inspiring example 
of the Church's ministry to the deaf; and especially, by the clear picture of the 
problems and aims of the Ecumenical Movement. 

We were happy to have the opportunity to meet the Bishop Coadjutor-elect 
and his charming wife, Tom and Marge Fraser. 

One of our young first-time delegates said, "Every Churchwoman should have 
the privilege of attending an Annual Meeting in order to realize the scope of 
our work for the Church". Surely this must make us realize even more our 
Christian Responsibility to the individual witnesses. 

Mrs. Melville Prongay, Chairman 
Courtesy and Findings Committee

of the Diocese of North Carolina as of December 31, 1959. Our examination was 
made in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards, and included 
a thorough examination of cash receipts and disbursements for the period under 
review. 

Practically all of the receipts of The Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese 
of North Carolina consist of contributions, over which no accounting control 
can be exercised prior to their initial entry in the accounting records. 

With the above explanation, in our opinion, the financial statements enclosed 
herein present fairly the financial position of The Episcopal Churchwomen of 
the Diocese of North Carolina at December 31, 1959 and its operations for the 
calendar year 1959. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Conrad & Company 
Certified Public Accountants

UNITED THANK OFFERING REPORT, APRIL, 1960 

The simple act of dropping a coin into a United Thank Offering Blue Box 
with a prayer of thanks for some specific blessing, or for the bountiful blessings 
which always surround us, requires nothing but a thankful and thoughtful 
heart. It is an experience of effective and practical worship and thanksgiving 
in which every Churchwoman can share. Yet without this Thank Offering, 
almost half the missionary work of our Church would be curtailed. It is the 
realization of the significance of our Blue Boxes, when seen in relation to the 
whole witness of our Church, that the United Thank Offering Custodians 
in the chapters, branches, district and diocese are pledged by acceptance of 
our office to impart. 

The total Ingathering from this Diocese for 1959 was $24,083.45, which was 
about $400 less than the offering for 1958. However, some increase has been 
shown in the 1960 Spring Ingathering which, with the offering of $178.89 at 
the Holy Communion Service at Annual Meeting, amounted to $12,000.98. 

United Thank Offering literature is plentiful and the District Custodians 
have samples which they are anxious to share with the branches or to order 
for them. There are very few phases of work in our Church which are not 
touched by the United Thank Offering, but at present about half the Church- 
women in this Diocese take no part in it. The devoted and untiring efforts 



48 Seventy-Eighth Annual Report 



of Custodians on all levels through the years have gradually given us a vision 
of "all women everywhere" joining in this "United Thank Offering of prayer 
and gifts and joyful service". It is our challenge to bring this vision closer 
to reality.

CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

From it's very beginning, the Church Periodical Club has served as a life line 
to the Missionaries, the Doctors, Teachers, Nurses, and Lay Workers who have 
gone from our Church to the four corners of the Globe with the Christian 
Message. 

The lack of personal contact between the local Branch and the National 
Office makes it difficult to sell the needs of this vital missionary work. It's 
a little difficult to get inspired or sometimes even enthusiastic about such items 
as "Cemical Abstracts" at $100.00 annually ; a must for St. Paul's University 
in Tokyo; or that a mission school in Honduras is in desperate need of arith- 
metic books; but these are typical examples of the many hundreds of needs met 
each year through the National Books Fund. 

Church Periodical Club operates in three fields: 
The first, or local level, is you — when you share a book or a magazine with a 
friend or neighbor; when you give locally to your schools, librarys, and hospitals, 
and when you meet specific needs of books, magazines, games, coloring books, 
scrap books, and the like for your local child caring institutions, rest homes, or 
penal institutions. 

On a Diocesan level, you have the opportunity to share from Parish to Parish 
such items as Bibles, Prayer Books, Hymnals, and religious literature with a 
new or needy mission, Clergy and Lay Workers serving within our own Diocese. 
If your Branch has these to share, notify your Diocesan Director of number, 
condition, etc. If you have a need, contact your District Director, who will 
apply to the Diocesan Director for help. 

The largest field of the Church Periodical Club is handled through the National 
Books Fund. Each year the field widens. During 195Q the National Books 
Fund gave assistance in 27 foreign countries, and 12 states within our borders. 
Unless you have some special project dear to your heart, it is best to give your 
funds undesignated to the National Books Fund. The value of undesignated 
funds was never better illustrated than during Christmas week last year when 
St. Luke's School of Nursing in Ponce, Puerto Rico was informed that certain 
texts would be necessary by January 14th. Through the Books Fund, with 
the help of Airmail, local purchases, and undesignated funds, this emergency 
was met. 

The record of achievement in this Diocese is good, but by no means represen- 
tative of the entire Diocese. 44 of our 110 branches participated last year. 
36 Branches contributed $525.73 to the National Books Fund, and 50 magazine 
subscriptions were sent from our Diocese to workers in this country and over- 
seas. You shared thousands of magazines and books with many people. 

Will you who have not participated in Church Periodical Club work now 
resolve to become a part of this very vital missionary life-line ; "that the fine 
books, magazines, and material which is our recorded heritage of wisdom may 



Episcopal Churchwomen 49 



become the tools of the Church to help with the building of a new, vigorous, 
and intelligent Christian Community throughout the World." 

Sincerely, 

Ethel Gant, Director 

Church Periodical Club 



CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

A report of Christian Education activities must serve two purposes: a brief 
look backward to evaluate the past year's experiences and a long look forward 
for better planning of next year's programs. 

The branch reports show that last year an overwhelming majority of branches 
had programs that had been carefully planned in advance in most cases by 
a Program Planning Committee. One-third of the branches based their studies 
on the Lambeth Report on the Family ; this was by far the most popular 
subject undertaken. Some form of Bible study was used by the second largest 
group. This was followed closely by mission study, particularly on Africa. 
One concludes from pursuing the reports that the importance of advance plan- 
ning is widely recognized as of primary significance. Beyond that one can 
make only a gross generalization: that more work must be done to get help 
to branches, especially small ones. 

We turn now to thinking in terms of next year's program plans. Following 
are the study suggestions made by the National Council: 

LIVING AS CHRISTIANS is a Seabury Series adult study course. Its stated 
program is to help adults to study, think through, and discuss together those 
elements of Christian teaching that are particularly pertinent to family life. 

INTO ALL THE WORLD TOGETHER is a theme that expresses the con- 
viction that the Christian mission is the whole Church taking the whole gospel 
to the whole man in the whole world. 

THE CHURCH'S MISSION IN TOWN AND COUNTRY is a study designed 
to acquaint the adults of the Church with the vast social changes taking place 
in town and country life and to show how the churches are meeting these 
changes. 

HERITAGE AND HORIZONS IN HOME MISSIONS calls adults to take 
a long hard realistic look at our nation in the world situation, and to ask 
what are the new and more demanding home mission frontiers; to examine our 
rich past and to learn from it but not be limited by it. 

CHRISTIAN RESPONSIBILITY AND FREEDOM is the 'coordinated em- 
phasis' for 1960-61. This means that it is suggested by the Department of 
Christian Social Relations in cooperation with the Department of Christian 
Life and Work of the National Council of Christ. The major aspects of the 
study are: the obligations and rights of Christians and churches to speak and 
act on public issues; and the relationships of the state and agencies of govern- 
ment to the churches in areas that affect the freedom of the churches and the 
religious and civil liberties of persons. 

Some suggested bibliography for each of these subjects is listed below. Re- 
member also The Church's Teaching Series and Adult Study Courses. Additional

time in the report of the Chairman of Missions a bibliography of resources 
which may be helpful to you in planning programs about the mission field. If 
none of these suggestions or themes meets the needs of your group, you will, 
I hope, look to your District Secretary for help.

CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS REPORT 

From correspondence, reports, and conversations I feel that the issues which 
have been of greatest concern to the Branches are Christian Citizenship, The 
Ageing, Inter-racial Understanding. World Relief, The Migrants, The Christian 
Family and Diocesan Institutions. It is gratifying to know that we are growing 
in the belief that Christian Social Relations is more than lending a helping 
hand in places of need and that many of us have found that "it is time to 
take time to understand our vocation as Christian People and the problems of 
our Community before moving into any form of action." It is good to have 
so many Branches report that they have studied the "Why and How" before 
moving into operation. 

The response to the call from the Presiding Bishop's Fund for World Relief 
has certainly been on the plus side and I congratulate you for the large amount 
of money, the pounds and pounds of clothing, and the more than a TON of 
Surplus Food which have found their way to our neighbors overseas. Please 
keep this up. 

It is with regret that I note a seeming lack of interest in the study of Industrial 
life and work. With North Carolina's industrial areas expanding so rapidly 
it well behooves us to be ready to meet the Needs of a changing Community 
before they become Problems. This, and next year's co-ordinated emphasis 
subject — "Christian Responsibility for Freedom" — I leave for my able successor 
to sponsor. I ask your co-operation with her in these and any other project 
she promotes. 

Will you seriously consider this statement made by the National Department 
of Christian Social Relations? "God created all life. God wills to redeem all 
of it within the context of the world in which he has placed us. The mission 
of the Department of Christian Social Relations of the National Council is 
that of the Church itself — concern to bring all of human living, individual and 
social, under the reign of God. The particular function of a Department of 
Christian Social Relations is to help the Church to reach out to this world in 
which we live, communicating the Gospel in terms relevant to its culture and 
society. It is a. task of evangelism, of judgment, and of healing. It is concerned 
with the individual both within his own personality and in his relationship to 
others. It must deal with all of life, not only that part of life which is within the 
organized Church but with that vastly larger area is sometimes called "secular". 
It is a department of Christian living. The authority for this is found in the 
life, work, and teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ as set forth in the Holy 
Scriptures." 

The close of this report marks the close of my term of office as your Christian 
Social Relations Secretary and I would like to say to you that your "acceptance" 
of this stranger whom you, at once, took in is one of the neatest pieces of 
Christian Social Relations work which you ever did ! 

Respectfully Submitted, 

Sue Glass Lee 

Mrs. Richard Henry Lee 



SUPPLY 

This is the report of what you have done in the past year for the Supply 
Department. 

On the Diocesan level, we accepted the National Supply assignment which 



54 Seventy-Eighth Annual Report 



included articles requested by St. Agnes Hospital, Raleigh ; Good Samaritan 
Hospital, Charlotte; Tuttle Community Center, Raleigh; Thompson Orphanage, 
Charlotte ; Cheyenne River Episcopal Mission, Eagle Butte, South Dakota ; 
Holy Cross Mission, Virgin Islands; St. Vincent School, Port-Au-Prince, Haiti. 

Your Diocesan Secretary purchased, cut, packed and shipped the material 
for the sewing program. This was shipped to the eight district supply secre- 
taries who distributed the material to the 78 branches requesting sewing assign- 
ments. 

In addition to our sewing assignments, please remember that the Thompson 
Orphanage can always make good use of our used clothing. We suggest that 
every branch have a spring and fall ingathering for clothing. Tuttle Com- 
munity Center can also use any type of clothing and material. Every article 
of clothing or piece of material can be used by some one in your Diocese. 

The Supply Department is going through a decided change. Saint Agnes 
Hospital will close some time this year. Therefore, their needs have been small 
this year. As a result we have doubled our National assignment. In the 
past two-thirds of our material was staying in our Diocese, and now, two-thirds 
is going out. 

It has been a privilege to have served as your supply secretary these past 
three years. Knowing and working with each of you has been a wonderful 
experience. I know that you will give your new secretary, Mrs. George Archer, 
the same co-operation and understanding that you gave me. 

The objectives of the Supply Department. 

1. To complete national assignment. 

2. To furnish Thompson Orphanage with new, and used clothing. 

3. To send good used clothing to Tuttle Community Center, Raleigh. 

4. To participate in the sewing program. 

5. To have each Branch President report to the Diocesan President on the 
Branch membership, and the request for sewing. 

6. To financially support the work of the Supply Department by sending 50^ 
per member to the Diocesan Treasurer. 

7. To have each District Supply Secretary serve as a link between Diocesan 
Supply Secretary and the Branch Secretaries. 

8. To have each Supply Secretary plan for the completion of the supply assign- 
ment, I.E. — To see that articles are sewed, pressed, packed and shipped. 
To make arrangements for the spring and fall ingatherings of good used 
clothing. To send reports on supply secretaries.

WORSHIP 

Because we as Episcopal Churchwomen are called first, to be — secondly, to do, 
we have a distinction that does not belong to other groups and organizations 
involved in doing "good works". Because we acknowledge that our purpose is 
the extension of the Kingdom of God as revealed to us by our Lord Jesus Christ, 
we are saying that we want to know our Lord in a very real and personal 
way in order that we may seek His Will in all we plan and do. We want 



58 Seventy-Eighth Annual Report 



to love our Lord and to live in the assurance of His Love and complete acceptance 
of us in order that we may be able to accept and show concern in a responsible 
way for each person we come into contact with in our daily living and work. 
But, because we are living in a society that is primarily concerned with doing 
and often mere activism and successes, we stand under the constant tension 
and temptation of being squeezed into conformity to the demands of the secular. 
We drive ourselves to distraction with too many ambitious projects. We drive 
ourselves to the point we are forgetful of the reason for our existence and 
finally to the point we lose our sense of direction. We sense we need help, 
a resource or a source to whom we may turn and find once again the courage 
to be. For this reason, one area of our worship program, The Quiet Day, is 
particularly meaningful to us. 

QUIET DAY: 

As we begin another year's work, let us urge each woman in our branches 
to attend and participate in the District Quiet Day, September 28. The Quiet 
Day will provide for us a special time to go apart to truly worship and adore 
our Lord, to rest in His Presence, to think through before Him the direction 
of our lives and work for the coming year. 

In realizing the need to return to the Source of our being for renewal and 
recommitment, we will want to plan a Quiet Day in each parish during Advent 
in preparation for Christmas or in Epiphany in preparation for Lent. 

PREPARATION AND RESPONSIBILITY: 

Because of the nature of our work with the worship program, this report 
will be forward looking instead of past reporting. Our initial steps in planning 
worship programs for the branches should be to "First give thyself to God: 
then to the work God gives thee to do''. This may come about through the 
experience of the Quiet Day, daily prayer and Bible meditation, using devotional 
books and reading such books as Ruel Howe's The Creative Years, Peter Day's 
Saints on Main Street and John Huess's Our Christian Vocation. Above all 
commit yourself to frequent participation in the Holy Communion. We, through 
God's Grace, will gain the courage to communicate and relate our growing con- 
viction of the vital need for our worship programs to be stepping stones to 
making the prayer life and corporate worship of the women of our branch more 
meaningful. 

As Branch Worship Chairman, we work closely with our Rector, the Christian 
Education Chairman and her committee. As soon as we know the Christian 
Education Program for the year, our concern is to inject the ingredient of 
worship into that program and to correlate the worship with the main emphasis 
of the educational program. Your Rector can be very helpful in selecting and 
explaining the appropriate Bible passages and prayers you plan to use. 
An enlightened understanding of the Bible passages enables you to prepare a 
more meaningful bridge-meditation to lead to the education program. Pray 
constantly for the courage of your convictions that the worship sendee is a vital 
and necessary part of every meeting and do not allow a too busy agenda force 
this service to be "skipped this meeting because we have so much really im- 
portant business to transact". Let the worship provide the contact with the life- 
giving Center from which every facet of the work of our women moves to 
and from for renewal and sense of direction. 

REACHING OUT: 

1. Encourage and assist in the formation and continuation of Bible Study 
groups, special study and discussion groups and Prayer Groups. (Again your 



Episcopal Churchwomen 59 



Rector should guide and assist you. See ''Bibliography of Prayer and Worship 
Materials for the Women of the Church'' arranged by Helen Shoemaker — For- 
ward Movement Publications) 

2. Take the opportunity to interpret the meaning and purpose of the seasons 
of the Christian Year and special Holy Days for "just as our ordinary daily 
tasks and activities are regulated by clocks and calendars so also our spiritual 
life and growth are ordered by times and seasons". This is another way the 
Church reaches out to try to help us find our sense of direction that will lead 
us to '"true maturity". (Special attention to Corporate Communions on Ember 
Day, September 16, and Epiphany, January 6. See Calendar for other special 
observances.) 

3. Keep in touch with the sick and shut-ins letting them know they are 
being thought about and asking them to share the ministry of prayer. 

4. Offer to assist with the Tract Rack, keeping it filled with up-to-date 
and appropriate devotional materials. 

In closing, I wish I could include a formula or blueprint for an effective 
worship program for your branch. I have none. I can only suggest to you 
perhaps in the area of worship we should enjoy the freedom of expressing our 
God-given creativity. We should use the thoughts, ideas and plans of others 
only as a guide or stimulus to help us work out what each feels to be the most 
effective and highest means of communicating and extending the Love of God 
into every area of the work of our Churchwomen. 

Your District Worship Chairman, your Rector and the North Carolina Church- 
man join me in offering you assistance. So please keep in close touch with us. 
My prayer for you and your work comes through the words of St. Paul: 

"That according to the riches of his glory may he grant you to be strengthened 
with might through his spirit in the inner man and that Christ may dwell in 
your hearts through faith, that you being rooted and grounded in love may 
have power to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth and length and 
height and depth and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, 
that you will be filled with all the fullness of God." 

Lucile A. McKee 
Chairman of Worship 



ALTAR WORK AND SERVICE OF EXCHANGE 

Our Episcopal Church altars are the center of our visual worship. Before 
this altar we are baptised, confirmed, married and have the burial office read 
over us. It is the spiritual thermometer of the parish. Because of this we 
love to maintain it at the highest possible point of visual perfection. 

Have you an organized Altar Guild in your parish? If not, contact your 
Rector and he will be glad to help you form one. Altar Guild membership 
is open to all women of the parish and membership can vary from time to 
time to include all women of the parish who are interested. These Guilds can 
meet regularly, to study altar work, or have sewing sessions to make articles 
for their parish, or for other parishes that need altar linens and hangings. It 
can also be a prayer group. 

The Altar Sewing group in Salisbury has been very busy this past year making 
numerous articles for use on State College and Lyman Memorial Altars. This 
last named altar is located in Diocesan House, Raleigh, and better known as 
Bishop Baker's altar. They have also made many articles for us in seven other 
churches in the Diocese. 



60 Seventy -Eighth Annual Report 



Programs on Altar work have been given in two parishes, workshops in two 
districts, and two additional groups have been given instructions in altar work. 
Slides of Altar work have been shown to ten groups. I would like to commend 
the work of Mrs. Dora Swanson who has been giving the instruction in sewing, 
and in showing the slides. Also for having so many articles for us in the 
Diocese. 

Many articles have been contributed, and money has been donated to purchase 
quite a few articles, that have been placed on the State College and Bishop 
Baker's altar. We do appreciate the interest shown. I wish to commend the 
untiring efforts of Miss Sylbert Pendleton, the sacristan for Bishop Baker's 
altar, for her tireless efforts to equip and maintain the Altar in Diocesan House. 

We have quite a few new missions in our Diocese and several old ones that 
are needing help. Do you have any articles that you are not using, that are 
useable? If so, please contact me, and make it possible for them to be placed 
where they are needed. Donations of money are always appreciated and this 
would make a good project for any group who would like to be very, very 
helpful — The need is constant. 

Josephine King Drake 
Chairman, Altar Work and 
Service of Exchange 



RADIO AND TELEVISION 

The One-Minute Radio programs were presented on 20 stations on Thanks- 
giving Day and Christmas Day in 1059 and the seven days in Holy Week, 
Easter Sunday, July 4th and Labor Day, 1960. On July 4th and Labor Day, 
five TV Channels presented the One-Minute TV spots. 

The coverage has been increased from 10 Radio Channels in 1959 to 20 in 
I960 and from 3 TV Channels to 5 TV Channels. The distribution costs for 
these eleven One-Minute programs were $5.00 for each Radio package and 
S10.00 for each TV package. This totaled $150.00— the amount allotted in the 
I960 budget for distribution. 

The 1960 Episcopal Hour was begun on March 13th in 25 cities in our Diocese 
with the Reverend Samuel M. Shoemaker as the speaker. The Presiding Bishop 
was the speaker on Easter Day. This Series was presented every Sunday through 
May 15th. There is no distribution charge for the Episcopal Hour. 

The Radio-TV Commission in the Diocese organized the distribution of the 
C. S. Lewis Series on "Love" in 5 College Communities. The local parishes 
financed these Radio programs. After each series of broadcasts in an area,

MISSIONS 

"The missionary principal is of the essence of the Christian faith." There 
are varieties of service and work possible between the missionaries and the 
Chairman of Missions who sees herself as a helper and administrator, doing 
the at home jobs of the mission that is Christ's and ours in Christ. Both can 
share the call "to see to it that the Faith which we bear is not hidden away 
in the deep recesses of our hearts, but that it shines forth and others will be 
blessed by it." 

The Missions Chairman can translate her commitment to and enthusiasm for 
the mission into at least four kinds of industry: 

1. A personal sense of responsibility for the acceleration of Church extension. 

2. Abundant prayers unceasingly offered that Christ will Himself be present 
whenever and wherever our missionaries meet those persons to whom they go 
to preach, to teach, to heal, to baptize. Their sufficiency and ours is of God! 
"It is chiefly in the realization that he is not alone, that the prayers of endless 
Christians back home are with him every step of the way, that the missionary 
overcomes the danger of loneliness." 

3. Group letters and gifts, as well as individual ones, through which a new 
relationship can become actual toward those with whom and for whom we work. 
Among the things they "truly want from us are contacts: people they can write 
for help" that will enable the Church to go forward in areas where means 
from other sources are not available. 

4. Presentation of significant news items to Churchwomen. Digest letters 
from and articles about missionaries and share the best parts of them with others. 
To give testimony in this way is a joy ! 

There is always opportunity to share knowledge with others — contributing 
quality to programs — helping to increase the understanding of current missionary 
opportunities. Christian education is missionary education, and the Chairman 
of Missions can collaborate with the Secretary of Christian Education toward 
promotion of the total program of missionary education. She can take a leading 
part in the development of plans for mission study groups. "Knowledge is 
needed and must be kept up to date for the fulfillment of the lay ministry and 
for the richest possible experience of the Christian life." Printed below is a 
list of books and periodicals, inexpensive and easy to get, selected to supply 
information and inspiration essential to forging the bond of strength that is 
our goal. 

PROCEDURE FOR HANDLING FUNDS

66 Seventy-Eighth Annual Report 



REPORT OF THE REPRESENTATIVE TO THE 
STATE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL 

During this past year the work of your Legislative Committee has been 
intensified by our repsonsibility in submitting an item to the Study Group of 
the State Legislative Council. 

As chairman of Legislative Committee and your representative to the Council, 
I attended the meetings of the Study Committee of the Council in June and 
in September. At the June meeting I requested that a study be made of the 
practice of Capitol Punishment. This I did with the authority of the Executive 
Board of the Episcopal Churchwomen of this Diocese. This study was approved. 
It was made by Mrs. Wm. P. Price and by me, and was submitted at the 
September meeting. With other items, it was recommended to the Annual 
Meeting of the State Legislative Council in November. It was one of the 
five items adopted out of thirteen submitted for the tentative legislative program 
of the Council for 1961. I was present at this meeting with the two other 
Committee members, Mrs. Wm. P. Price, St. Mary's, High Point, and Mrs. 
Wm. Joslin, Christ Church, Raleigh. 

The program was sent by me to each Branch President. In an enclosed 
letter I urged that these items be studied in preparation for voting upon them 
at the Annual Meeting. I spoke on the measures at the four Branches which 
requested my help. 

With the approval of the other members of the Legislative Committee and 
in cooperation with a sub-committee of our Diocesan Department of Christian 
Social Relations, I helped to draw up a Resolution for the abolition of the 
Death Penalty in North Carolina. This Resolution was presented at our Annual 
Meeting, April 27th. It was tabled. 

Since Annual Meeting I have reported to the Executive Secretary of the 
State Legislative Council that all six measures were approved by a majority 
of the delegates at our Annual Meeting on April 27th.

Legislative Council, and Chairman

FOREWORD 
It has been said that the year 1961 will go down in the history of the 
Christian Church as the year in which the Third Assembly of the World 
Council of Churches met in New Delhi. 

There is little doubt that this will be the case for the great leaders of the 
Christian Church. They will know and they will be informed about the find- 
ings of the Third Assembly. But if the rank and file of the Church is to know 
it will be the result of strong and positive leadership on the part of this in- 
formed and concerned group. 

The handbook of the Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North 
Carolina will speak as a segment of this leadership. Be it known that the theme 
of the Third Assembly will be "Jesus Christ the Light of the World". This 
penetrating beam will be focused on the darkest corners of our culture. We pray 
that no prejudice, no complacency, no fear of ours will dim its saving grace. 

Faithfully yours, 
Richard H. Baker 
Bishop of North Carolina 



PRAYERS

PRAYERS FOR EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 

Almighty God, our heavenly Father, bless, we pray Thee, our work for the extension 
of Thy Kingdom, and make us so thankful for the precious gift to us of Thy beloved Son, 
that we may pray fervently, labor diligently, and give liberally to make Him known to all 
nations as their Saviour and their King through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, whose love reacheth unto the world's end, and who didst send Thy bless- 
ed Son to redeem all mankind help us, we pray Thee so to reveal Thy love in prayer and 
work and stewardship, that by Thy spirit all nations and people may be baptized into one 
body, even as all are redeemed by one Saviour; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

PRAYER FOR MISSIONS 

Almighty God, help us we pray Thee, to shed abroad the light of Thy Church in all 
the world. Give us greater zeal for thy Kingdom, that we may offer abundantly our 
prayers, our work, and our gifts; so that the earth may be filled with the knowledge of Thy 
glory, as the waters cover the sea, through Thy Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

FOR GUIDANCE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT 

O God, forasmuch as without Thee we are not able to please Thee, mercifully grant 
that Thy Holy Spirit may in all things direct and rule our hearts; through Christ our 
Lord. Amen. 

PRAYER FOR HUMAN RELATIONS 

O God, our heavenly Father, who hast created all men after Thy likeness, we beseech 
Thee to incline Thine ear to us as we ask Thy help in doing our duty as Christian citizens 
and as members of Thy Holy Church. We acknowledge our many transgressions of Thy 
righteous law and especially our failure to see Thine image in all Thy children for whose 
sake Thy Son was content to die. Grant that we may follow in the steps of Him with whom 
there was no respect of persons. 

Make us ready to acknowledge the Truth as it stands written in Thy Holy Word. Give 
us courage in our thinking and honesty in our decisions. Lift us above self-interest and 
prejudice and whatsoever else may hinder us from a just and righteous dealing with our 
neighbor. Guide with thy wisdom those to whom Thou hast committed the responsibility of 
government, that all things pertaining to the relationship of man with man may be settled 
upon the sure foundation of Thy Holy Will as made known to us in Thy Son, Jesus Christ 
our Lord. Amen. 

— The Rt. Rev. Edwin A. Penick, D.D. 

PRAYER FOR CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 

Jesus, our Master and our friend, who claimest our service through the needs of our 
neighbors; Grant us so to see Thy image in all our fellow creatures that in serving man- 
kind we may minister to Thee, the living Saviour of the world. Grant to each one of us, 
that we may do our part in bringing about an order of society where there is no just 
cause for discontent or bitterness of spirit, and where every person may be enabled to come 
to the fullness of perfection for which he was made, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



Seventy-Ninth Annual Report 



FOR THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 

O Lord, Our Heavenly Father, we pray Thee to send forth more laborers into Thy 
harvest, and to grant them Thy special grace for every need. Guard and guide the workers 
in the field, and draw us into closer fellowship with them. Dispose the hearts of all women 
everywhere to give gladly as Thou hast given to them. Accept from grateful hearts our 
United Thank Offering of prayer, and gifts and joyful service; and bless it to the coming 
of Thy Kingdom, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Accept, O Father, this joyful sacrifice of thanksgiving and praise, and bless these 
gifts to the setting forward of Thy Kingdom; that as we have gratefully received the 
benefits Thy bounty has bestowed, so we may cheerfully share them with Thy children 
in all the world; for his sake whose life and death and rising to life again were a song 
of praise to Thee, O Thou Most Holy, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen. 

FOR CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

O God, who hast sent Thy beloved Son to be unto us the Way, the Truth and the 
Life; grant that we, looking unto Him may set forward the teaching power of Thy 
Church, to the nurture of Thy children, the increase of Thy Kingdom and the glory of Thy 
Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

THE PRAYER FOR THE SUPPLY WORK 

Almighty God, who hast taught us by Thy Son, Jesus Christ, that it is more blessed to 
give than it is to receive, look with favor, we beseech Thee, upon the supply work of Thy 
Church, especially in this Diocese. Touch our hearts with compassion for the poor, the sick, 
and homeless, and make us strong to lift their burdens with our ready gifts and service; 
through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen. 

PRAYER FOR THE THOMPSON ORPHANAGE 

Almighty God, who art the Father of the fatherless, send Thy blessings upon the 
Thompson Orphanage, instituted in Thy name. Give patience and wisdom to the officers, 
teachers and matrons of this home, that they may faithfully discharge the duties committed 
to their charge. Let the boys and girls grow in grace and earnestness, day by day. Strengthen 
their bodies, enlighten their minds, purify their hearts and sanctify their wills. Bless all 
who have contributed to this institution, and raise up, we pray Thee, a never-failing succes- 
sion of benefactors whose names may be perpetuated through all generations, as a blessed 
memory, and their good deeds be accepted: through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

FOR THE EVERY MEMBER CANVASS 

God our Father, who providest for Thy children in advance of their needs, bless we 
pray the work of our Every Member Canvass, and grant us all to share in it with glad and 
willing hearts for the sake of Thy Kingdom, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

FOR DIOCESAN MISSIONARIES 

O Lord and Heavenly Father, without who we can do no good thing, but with whose 
help even Thy little ones go forth as the mighty, we beseech Thee to prosper the work 
of all Thy missionaries, wherever they may be (and especially the work of Thy servant 

). Grant them the wisdom to know and the strength to do Thy will, 

and bless them with the hope and consolation of Thy heavenly promises, for the sake of 
Thy Son, Our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen. 

FOR PERSONNEL 

Our Father, if it be Thy will, put it into the heart of some young man or young 
woman of this parish to choose one of the many vocations within the Church for his or 
her life work, whether it be in our own land or overseas. We pray Thee help each one of 



Episcopal Churchwomen 



us, whatever our calling, to practice it as becomes a Christian in Thy name and with Thy 
guidance. Amen. 

NOONDAY PRAYERS 

Blessed Saviour, who at this hour didst hang upon the Cross stretching forth Thy loving 
arms; grant that all mankind may look upon Thee and be saved. Amen. 

Blessed Lord, inspire our hearts and the hearts of all men everywhere with the love of 
God and of our fellowmen, that we may be worthy of world peace. This we pray in 
Jesus' name. Amen. 

FOR WORLD PEACE 

Almighty God, from who all thoughts of truth and peace proceed; kindle, we pray 
Thee, in the hearts of all men the true love of peace, and guide with Thy strong and 
peaceful wisdom those who take counsel for the nations of the earth, that in tranquility 
Thy Kingdom may go forward, till the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of thy love; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

FOR CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

O Lord Jesus Christ, Who art the Light of the World, pour out, we beseech Thee, 
upon all Thy servants Thy Holy Spirit of Wisdom and understanding that they may know 
the hope of Thy calling, the riches of Thine inheritance in the saints, and the greatness 
of Thy power to us who believe. More especially we pray Thee to direct and prosper 
the Church Periodical Club that in all its prayer and labor it may be enabled to make the 
light of Thy glory shine forth in the dark places of the earth. And do Thou of Thy mercy 
and grace stablish Thy Church in the truth of Thy Gospel, who livest and reignest with 
the Father and the Holy Spirit ever One God, world without end. Amen. 

FOR USE BEFORE AND AT THE TIME OF THE ELECTION 
OF OFFICERS 

O Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can enable us to fulfill the Will 
of God, teach us, we pray Thee, the dignity of our work as churchwomen, and give us 
grace to choose as our leaders those whom Thou dost call to Thy faithful service. To those 
so chosen give a spirit of reverence in the exercise of their office, and to all of us a deep 
sense of our obligation in the discharge of every duty, to do all to the glory of God through 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

BENEDICTION 

May the blessings of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, rest 
upon us and upon all work and worship done in His name. May He give us light to guide 
us, courage to support us, and love to unite us, now and forevermore. Amen.

10 Seventy-Ninth Annual Report 

SERVICE OF 

INSTALLATION OF OFFICERS FOR THE 

EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 

Let those who have been elected stand before the Bishop and then let him say: 

It is right and fitting that those who have been duly elected as Officers of the Episcopal 
Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina, should be formally received and admitted into 
their respective offices in your presence; and that we should ask the blessing of God upon 
them for their support and guidance in the performance of the duties which you have laid 
upon them. 

O Lord, save these Thy servants, 
Who put their trust in Thee. 
Send them help from the holy place, 
And evermore mightily defend them, 
O Lord, hear our prayer. 
And let our cry come unto Thee. 
Let us pray. 

Our Father . . . 

Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings, with Thy most gracious favour, and further us 
with Thy continual help; that in all our works begun, continued and ended in Thee, we 
may glorify Thy holy name, and finally by Thy mercy, obtain everlasting life; through 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, the giver of all good gifts; give Thy Grace, we humbly beseech Thee, 
to these Thy servants who have been chosen to serve Thee in the special work for which 
they have been selected; grant unto them zeal and earnestness in the performance of their 
office; wisdom and strength to meet each day their task; and love in the doing of it; and 
give them the vision to see their oportunities for service, to the glory of Thy great name 
and the benefit of Thy Holy Church; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Bless us, O God, with the vision of Thy Being and Thy Beauty, that in the strength of 
it we may work without haste and without rest; through Jesus Christ our Lord. 

I receive and admit you to the office of Be faithful, 

zealous, sincere and humble in all your tasks, and may the Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ 
and the love of God our Father and the guiding fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you 
evermore. Amen. 

BENEDICTION 

The Father, Son and Holy Ghost bless, preserve and keep you, in your work, in your 
worship, this day and always, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

OBJECTIVES FOR THE BRANCHES 

OF THE EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN, 

DIOCESE OF NORTH CAROLINA, 1961-1962 

Both from the General Division of Women's work, which is trying to convey the 
reasons for the change in our name, and from the grass roots — the parishes and missions 
of this diocese — there seems to be general agreement that the greatest need for the women, 
indeed for all the laity, is to see ourselves not as a group of organizations, but as an 
organism — the living Body of Christ. For this reason the Churchwomen's Conference at 
Vade Mecum this summer was planned around the theme of the Church as the Body of 
Christ. In developing the theme, we hope first of all to gain a better understanding of the 
true nature of the Church and its mission to the secular, divided and rapidly changing 
society around us and secondly, to help us see ourselves as part of the whole Church rather 
than as a separate entity. One cannot understand the Church without understanding its 
mission in our communities, in the diocese and in the world. Under the leadership of the 
clergy and in cooperation with the laymen and young people, we must be His loving hands 
to reach out to all men. His feet to go into far places, His voice to proclaim "the acceptable 
year of the Lord". The chief and underlying objective for the coming year is that we have a 
clearer understanding of the implications of this mission and a deepened commitment to it. 

To make any real progress toward an objective stated in such general terms we need 
to think of concrete ways in which we can implement it. When planning the worship, work 
and program for the coming year, therefore, it is hoped that every branch will take seriously 
the following specific objectives: 

I. Evaluation of purpose and goals. That every branch may examine its total program and 

activities in the light of the following questions. 

1. Do we the women of this parish thoroughly understand the Christian faith and see 
the relevance of it for the totality of our lives? 

2. Do we see ourselves as part of the total structure of the parish and of the diocese? 
In close cooperation with clergy and bishops do we strive to be a tool and instrument 
for furthering the work of the Church in whatever way we can best help at any 
given moment? 

3. Are we individually or as a group making any impact on our communities by 
effective action toward remedying the social evils that surround us? 

4. Have we lost the vision of the world-wide mission of the Church? 

II. Organizational structure. That every branch look carefully at its organizational structure 

to see whether or not it has become too cumbersome or too rigid and whether it needs 
revision in the light of the questions asked above, the changing conditions of women's 
daily lives and the new and challenging situations surrounding us; that at the same 
time the district and diocesan Episcopal Churchwomen look at their structure from 
the same point of view. 

III. Planning and coordination. That every branch try to organize its necessary business as 

efficiently as possible so as not to consume rime in meetings that should be given to 
worship, matters of policy, serious study and inspiration; that the officers together with 
the rector plan a coordinated program for the year, so that instead of each officer 
carrying out her specific project without regard to what is being done by others, the 
needs of the whole group will have been considered in a program of worship, study 
and action that is a coordinated whole and not a series of unrelated incidents. (This 
has been said repeatedly, but is admittedly hard to put in practice and must receive 
constant thought and attention). 

IV. Challenge and outreach. That every branch seriously consider whether or not they 
have been too concerned with their own needs and not enough with doing the work 
of Christ in the world; that they consider whether they fail to attract and hold the 
enthusiasm and deep devotion of members and prospective members because there is 
sometimes not enough in our program to kindle the imagination and the heart; that 
they consider participating in all, or at least some, of the new projects for the diocese 
about which they will be hearing more in the fall: — new programs under the Depart- 
ment of Christian Social Relations and Christian Education, the Sinking Fund for 
Diocesan Missions to be used for church extension in this diocese, the Companion 
Diocese project with the Missionary District of Panama, an opportunity for learning 



12 Seventy-Ninth Annual Report 

as well as for sharing in the mission of the Church in which the whole parish may 
participate. 

None of these objectives can be accomplished unless each one of us undertakes to pray, 
think, plan and act that the work of Our Lord may take on new meaning, new diminsions, 
new relevance and new vitality.

14 Seventy-Ninth Annual Report 

THE PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS 

It is a great pleasure to welcome all of you to this 79th Annual Meeting. It gives us an 
opportunity to be together again, to meet and enjoy old friends and to make new ones very 
easily, for in the bonds that link us together as Churchwomen it is our hope that no one 
will be a stranger. 

While thinking about the things we have been doing together during the past year, 
the theme of our summer conference at Vade Mecum, A Field for Toil and Faith and 
Hope, seems to say it all with a new emphasis. More often than not, the nature of the 
duties I have engaged in as your President and you as Officers and Churchwomen have been 
a very happy combination of all three. For all of us "the field" grows larger every day 
so there is "toil". Whatever we do today must, as far as we know, be more nearly the 
right thing so "faith" must be clear and true and "hope" that we may understand the full- 
ness of its meaning and yet be willing to accept the incompleteness of what we do, and yet 
feel very thankful that the "field" is ours to share with all who would serve our Lord. 

As your representative, I reported to the Diocesan Convention concerning our work. I 
served on the Planning Committee and attended our Churchwomen's Conference at Vade 
Mecum, attended District Meetings and District Workshops, and through your thoughtfulness 
in inviting me, attended many Branch Meetings. I attended the meeting of the Provincial 
Churchwomen of the Fourth Province as well as the Executive Board Meetings of the 
Provincial Churchwomen. I attended the Penick Lectures at W. C. U. N. C, St. Augustine's 
Convocations, Women's Day gatherings, all meetings of the Executive Council and, when 
possible, the meetings of the Department of Missions. Your President-elect has also served 
on the Executive Council to fill an unexpired term, and as she has also been a member of 
the Department of Missions, we have tried to alternate attending special sessions of the 
Department. 

We are particularly glad to note that our former Diocesan Director of the Church 
Periodical Club, Mrs. S. T. Easty of Holy Trinity, Greensboro, was elected a member-at- 
large of this national organization. At the Provincial Meeting in Memphis your President 
was elected a representative from the Churchwomen to serve on the Provincial Department 
of College Work, which includes Personnel. 

In this special field, I would like for you to know that two of our college chaplains, 
The Reverend Joseph O'Brien of Duke University and The Reverend Jacob Viverette of the 
University of North Carolina, planned and directed a conference in February at the Duke 
Episcopal Student Center on Church Vocations for Women. It was my privilege to attend 
this conference and I was delighted with it. The staff was exceptionally effective, detad 
planning was excellent. The Churchwomen in Durham did everything possible to help in 
the way of providing gracious hospitality and delicious meals. I am receiving enthusiastic 
reports from many sources, including members of the General Division, I hope this very 
special service to the church may be repeated in many areas. 

From the General Division Thank Offering Committee we are pleased and grateful 
to note there was a grant from this Committee of Thank Offering funds in the amount of 
$5,393.00 to St. Augustine's College in Raleigh to repair their electrical generator and 
another grant of $830.00 to replace their hot water heater. This is the second time during 
my term of office that St. Augustine's has received Thank Offering funds and again we 
witness what can and does happen anywhere, when we remember "to be thankful." 

For interesting statistics you will want to know that due to several branches rechecking 
their membership lists for accuracy, we may claim only 5,521 members against 6,124 that 
paid Central Fund last year. You are asked to check carefully to see if your list of members 
is accurate. We have twenty branches that reported a decrease and only fifteen that reported 
an increase in membership. Seven branches decreased their pledge to the Diocesan budget and 
eleven branches raised theirs. There are 108 branches on our records and three of these 
are almost inactive. We would like to especially give a very warm and cordial welcome 
to the new branch, St. Christopher's, in Charlotte. A representative from this splendid 
group of young women will serve on two of our committees. 

For detailed figures you will later hear the Treasurer's report, but briefly there appears 
in round figures, including Specials, Inside and Outside the Diocese, Central Fund, C.P.C., 
and U.T.O., approximately $68,500.00. 

This represents in part what we have done together. Local budgets throughout all our 
branches are splendid and a great many contributions are never reported to our Treasurer. 

May I take this opportunity to remind you that the Episcopal Churchwomen's Diocesan 



Episcopal Churchwomen 15 

budget is carefully prepared with the assistance of people at National Council, our Bishops 
and the members of the Diocesan Finance Committee, meeting in an all-day session to in- 
vestigate and check every item included in this budget. If we could give larger amounts to 
this budget rather than many small amounts to so many things, the Finance Committee 
feels our gifts would serve a more effective purpose. 

Our Churchwomen have three representatives on the Executive Council of the Diocese, 
and each one is elected for a term of three years. Therefore, it is easy to see that few of us 
have this opportunity to understand and to see first hand how the business of the Diocese 
is carried on between the sessions of the Diocesan Convention, which is the final authority 
for policy and action in the Diocese. At the end of my membership on the Council I feel 
so concerned that our women know so little about Diocesan business that I want not only 
to urge you to try to do something about it but to offer some suggestions as to how you 
can do this, as well as to say why I feel it is so important. 

To begin: Each year, the Diocesan Convention, clergy and lay delegates adopt for the 
next year two budgets, the Episcopal Maintenance Budget and the Program of the Church 
Budget. The Episcopal Maintenance Fund is exactly what it says, to provide for the things 
necessary to our being an Episcopal Church. We are happy to say there is very little difficulty 
in any parish or mission failing to be perfectly happy and willing to pay their proportionate 
share of this fund. 

The Program of the Church Budget includes four things: 

1st: Our share of the National Church Program, which includes all work of the 
National Council authorized by General Convention. 

2nd: Our share of the Provincial Church Program — which is quite nominal. 

3rd: Our own Diocesan Church Program, which includes our support of 

(1) the Institutions of the Diocese 

(2) the Missions in the Diocese 

(3) Department of College Work 

(4) Department of Christian Education 

(5) Department of Christian Social Relations 

(6) Commission on Evangelism 

(7) Commission on Church Music 
and finally the Contingent Fund is Number 4. 

There is on the part of the Bishops of our Diocese, the Executive Council of the 
Diocese and its Departments, the Officers and Executive Board of our Episcopal Church- 
women, and the Convocations of the Diocese of North Carolina, and the North Carolina 
Churchman a continuing effort to share with every communicant of the Diocese the entire 
business of the Diocese, whether it is spiritual or material, encouraging and flourishing, or 
depressing and apparently hopeless. The reason for this sharing is the Bishops and all leaders 
in the Diocese feel the work of our Diocese is too complex, too serious, and far too 
important and far-reaching to belong to any group or councils. It involves us all to the 
extent where we are interested and concerned enough to be willing to discover and 
appreciate what is happening. 

The work of our Diocese is growing at a healthy and satisfactory rate, but many vestries 
and mission committees are so concerned with parochial emergencies and needs they are 
reluctant to commit their church to an acceptance of this part of the church's work, and 
even when it has been accepted it is not always paid. If the women of the church will 
become sufficiently concerned to look into what their parish or mission is doing toward 
this program, I am sure it will encourage the men to make a greater effort to see that each 
church accepts and pays its fair share to the work we do together. Unless each parish and 
each mission shares in this program the work cannot include what is important and vital to 
the ongoing of the work of the Church in this Diocese. 

There are several ways in which you can help about this. Each of us has the right 
and privilege to vote for members of our own vestry, so you should know the men you 
elect and their attitude about the business of the church. Second — do not ask your vestry 
to do more than they can at home without neglecting the obligations of our Diocese. Third 
— we can inform our members about the importance and value of items that make up the 
program of the church. 

The Convocations meet soon after the Executive Council and the minutes of the Council 
are available to everyone attending the Convocation Meeting. We can read our N. C. 
Churchman more seriously. We can attend District Meetings of our Churchwomen more 
often. 



16 Seventy-Ninth Annual Report 

If the services of our church mean so much to each of us, cannot we stir ourselves 
enough to help some other women enjoy the same privilege? Perhaps she needs and wants 
them even more than we do, and I most emphatically state that only by working together 
and sharing in the responsibility for keeping church doors open, supporting work at our 
college and university centers, continuing the educational work among our children and 
young people as well as our adults, will we be able to do even the most basic work in 
evangelism. 

Sharing in this budget says that we feel a responsibility for the Diocesan community and 
also that we, too, are committed to a full share of responsibility for its every effort in its 
greatest task, evangelism, or more simply, believing so firmly in the good news of the 
Gospel that our lives and all we do must reflect our acceptance of this task. 

And finally we can remember that the needs of the Church must come first to every 
Churchwoman. From the beginning of our work together this has been stressed and yet 
today we must again reaffirm that this is our first concern. Therefore, I ask you to more 
seriously accept your share of the work of our Diocese and to help each and every Church- 
woman of this Diocese to feel she is a living part of it, and to so order her life that she 
may share in many areas of our corporate work. In so doing, may we feel an ever increasing 
knowledge of God's love, may we grow closer to each other in a greater understanding of 
Christian community, and so more nearly fulfill the purpose for which we come together in 
His name.

and thanks from her daughter, Jocelyn Gordon, for our gifts and prayers for her. Her son, 
The Right Reverend William J. Gordon, as well as Jocelyn, will be at home during the sum-

were read. 

Mrs. M. E. Motsinger, Jr., U.T.O. Custodian, was announced as the chairman of the 
Officers' Round Table discussion. Mrs. Motsinger stated that all Officers' reports would appear 
in the 1961 Year Book and that plans for the future will be presented in the District Work- 
shops at the spring meetings. Their talks at this meeting would be rather an evaluation of 
their work in the past Triennium. Reporting were:

Following these, the Reverend Robert M. Turner, Priest-In-Charge of St. John's Mission, 
Wake Forest, and St. John's Mission, Henderson, spoke on the work in the Missionary 
District of Panama and The Canal Zone, where he served for six years. To support his 
claim regarding the strategic importance of Panama, Mr. Turner explained that this district 
is second in size to Alaska, but with a population of 40,000,000, seventy times that of 
Alaska. Of these only 7,000 are communicants of the church. These are ministered to by 
twenty-one Episcopal priests who must cover a distance of 13,000 miles in carrying on their 
work. Almost half of these twenty-one priests are native born. 

The meeting recessed for lunch, to reconvene at 2:15. 

Following the singing of hymn 548, Mrs. Whisnant spoke briefly on the planning for 
the future of Thompson Orphanage. The plan is to carry on as usual until the move to the 
farm can be made. Mrs. Whisnant extended to the meeting an invitation on the part of the 
children to a tea at the Orphanage following the afternoon session. 

The President called for the report of the Committee on Credentials. Miss Jessie Pickens,

mend that the offering this evening be given to the Henry St. George Tucker Memorial 
Mission to Africa being sponsored by the Virginia Theological Seminary at Alexandria, Va. 
The Seminary is preparing to send three especially qualified teaching missionaries to 
Africa." 

Miss Pickens moved the adoption of this recommendation. It was seconded and carried. 

The Secretary read Section 1 of Article VIII of the Constitution pertaining to the 
election of officers. 

The President called for a report of the Nominating Committee. This was read by 
Mrs. Surratt, chairman, as follows: 

First Vice-President — Mrs. T. P. Thomas, St. Timothy's, Wilson 
Second Vice-President — Mrs. B. W. Roberts, St. Philip's, Durham 
Secretary of Christian Education — Mrs. }. B. Greenwood, St. Martin's, Charlotte 
Executive Council (3 year term) — Mrs. James L. Godfrey, Chapel of the Cross, Chapel Hill 
Executive Council (2 year term) — Mrs. W. J. Long, Jr., All Saints, Roanoke Rapids 

The Chairman of the Nominating Committee made the motion that the slate be 
adopted. The President called for nominations from the floor in succession for First Vice- 
President, Second Vice-President, Secretary of Christian Education, Representative on the 
Executive Council for a three year term, Representative on the Executive Council for a two 
year term. There being no nominations from the floor, it was moved and seconded in each 
instance that the Secretary be instructed to cast an unanimous ballot for those on the slate. 
In each case the motion carried, the Secretary cast the ballot, and the slate presented by the 
Committee was adopted. 

The President explained that in the case of the Representatives on the Diocesan Executive 
Council the Episcopal Churchwomen make the nomination to this office, but the election 
is by the Diocesan Convention. 

Mrs. Surratt read the nominations of her committee for delegates to the Triennial as 
follows: 

Mrs. James L. Godfrey, Chapel of The Cross, Chapel Hill 

Mrs. J. B. Greenwood, St. Martin's, Charlotte 

Mrs. T. P. Thomas, St. Timothy's, Wilson 

Mrs. M. E. Motsinger, Jr., Galloway Memorial, Elkin 

Mrs. W. H. R. Jackson, Good Shepherd, Raleigh 

Mrs. B. W. Barnes, Church of The Redeemer, Greensboro 

The President then called for nominations from the floor. There being none, it was 
moved, seconded and carried that the Secretary be instructed to cast an unanimous ballot 
for the slate presented by the Nominating Committee for delegates to the Triennial. 

Mrs. Surratt then read the nominations of her committee for alternates to the Triennial: 

Mrs. Henry B. Chandlee, Jr., Church of The Holy Comforter, Charlotte 



20 Seventy-Ninth Annual Report 

Mrs. E. C. Gratiot, St. Andrew's, Greensboro 

Mrs. Richard G. Stone. Good Shepherd, Raleigh 

Mrs. Chadwick P. Smith, Church of The Holy Comforter, Charlotte 

Mrs. William D. Holloman, Jr., Trinity, Scotland Neck 

Mrs. Mary D. Hamilton, St. Ambrose, Raleigh 

The President called for nominations from the floor. There being none it was moved, 
seconded and carried that the Secretary be instructed to cast an unanimous ballot for the 
slate presented by the Nominating Committee. 

Due to the recently adopted change in policy for electing Trustees of Kanuga Lakes, 
Inc.. it became necessary to re-nominate our recently nominated trustee and Mrs. John 
Clayton Smith was unanimously elected to be said nominee to be recommended to the 
Diocesan Convention. 

Mrs. W. M. Gardiner, Christ Church, Raleigh, spoke on the importance of the ministry 
to the ageing on a Parish level, beginning now. It is planned to have a chairman for this 
program appointed in every Convocation. 

The chairmen of the eight Districts were the next to report. Last year the chairmen in 
their report stressed the need for a closer cooperation between the Districts and the Diocese. 
This year each told of what has been accomplished in her District during the past year 
through carrying out this very special goal of cooperating. Representing the Districts were: 

Edgecombe — Mrs. G. E. Gauss 

Forsyth-Rowan — Mrs. Edward B. Heyd 

Granville — Mrs. James King 

Guilford — Mrs. E. C. Gratiot 

Orange — Mrs. Gordon Woody 

Mecklenburg — Mrs. Francis O. Clarkson 

Richmond — Mrs. Foy J. Barwick 

Wake — Mrs. E. E. Carter 

Mr. Norman Cocke, General Chairman of the campaign for the Episcopal Home for 
the Ageing, was presented and he in turn introduced Dr. Frank Marsh, of St. Luke's, Salis- 
bury. Dr. Marsh described the growing need for such a home within the Diocese and reported 
on the progress of the campaign to date and on plans for the future. He urged support of 
the project that we may meet our obligations as Christians in meeting the needs of the 
elderly within our Diocese. 

Mrs. James Peeler. Chairman of the Interracial Comm'ttee. reported that there are now 
350 members in the minority group with 17 Branches. 15 Branches have met all pledges, but 
progress in other fields of work is not so marked. Real progress has been made since the 
dissolution of the Negro District in adjustment to the change. "We have been grateful for 
the opportunity to work in this closer relationship with all the Episcopal Churchwomen." 

In the absence of Dr. Stone, Mrs. Harold Ernst of Charlotte reported for St. Mary's 
Junior College. The greatest and most pressing need at the present is for a new Library as 
the old building is inadequate. This need must be met for St. Mary's to retain accreditation 
by the Southern Association of Junior Colleges. 

Mrs. Chandlee told of the plans for the Episcopal Churchwomen's Conference at Vade 
Mecum, June 25-30, 1961. The theme for the conference is "The Church." Mrs. Godfrey 
followed, telling more of the workshops to be held. She gave the subjects to be discussed 
each day, each dealing with the main theme, "The Church." Mrs. Godfrey urged that each 
District have a full representation at this conference. 

The Reverend Floyd William Finch, Jr., Rector of The Church of The Holy Comforter, 
spoke on the "Companion Diocese Plan," in which the Diocese of North Carolina will join 
with the Missionary District of Panama and the Canal Zone. This plan will strengthen both 
parties, for The Church is Missions and we must see the world as one. This is a personalized 
relationship and not an adoption. 

Following this talk the meeting recessed until 8:00 p.m. 

At 8:00 p.m. the service of Evening Prajer was read by The Reverend Floyd William 
Finch. The Right Reverend Thomas A. Fraser preached the evening sermon on "Christian 
Responsibility for Evangelism," using the theme of the meeting. The service was greatly 
enriched by having the girls' choir of St. Mary's Chapel, Thompson Orphanage, to sing 
with the choir of The Church of The Holy Comforter. This choir, under the direction of 
Mrs. C. R. Whitt sang the offertory and a beautiful descant to the hymn "Faith of Our 
Fathers." 

On April 12th the celebrant at the 7:30 a.m. service of Holy Communion was The Right 



Episcopal Churchwomen 21 

Reverend Richard H. Baker, who was assisted by the Rev. George Nacle Forzly of St. 
Martin's and the Rev. Floyd Finch and the Rev. Phillip Cato of The Holy Comforter. The 
United Thank Offering was presented at this service and those members of the Episcopal 
Churchwomen who have died since the last Annual Meeting were remembered with prayers 
before the altar. 

Following this service breakfast was served in the Parish House. 

The Annual Meeting reconvened at 9:30 a.m. The Reverend Phillip Cato, assistant to 
the Rector of The Church of The Holy Comforter, opened the meeting with prayer follow- 
ing the singing of hymn 279. 

The offering at the evening service was announced as $270.78. This will go to "The 
Bishop Tucker Memorial Fund" as was voted on the previous day. 

Miss Pickens, Treasurer, explained the proposed allocation of the 1960 surplus as 
follows: 

1960 Surplus $580.73 

Outside Diocese — One half to Companion Diocese Project $290.36 

Inside Diocese — One half for Youth Work — 

Discretionary fund — The Rev. William Yon $290.37 

She moved that the proposed allocation as recommended by the Executive Board to 
the Annual Meeting be accepted. The motion was seconded and carried. 

Miss Pickens then presented the proposed 1962 budget item by item. She moved that the 
section of the budget for disbursement outside the Diocese be adopted. The motion was 
seconded and carried. She then moved that the section for disbursement inside the Diocese 
be adopted. The motion was seconded and carried. She then moved that the proposed 
budget for administration be adopted. This motion was seconded and carried. Complete 
information concerning each item in the budget (outside the Diocese and inside the 
Diocese) was included in the delegates' packets. 

Miss Pickens read the recommendation of the Executive Board for the Intercessory 
offerings: 

Feast of The Epiphany — January 6 — Jocelyn Gordon. 

Ember Wednesday — September — Diocesan Fund to train women for Church work. 

In 1960 these offerings were: 

Epiphany $1,202.70 

Ember Day $ 586.00 

Miss Pickens then made the motion that the entire budget as presented be adopted. 
The motion was seconded and carried. 

As Chairman of the Finance Committee, she reported that we have a total of $1,728.57 
in accumulated funds with the Security Savings and Loan Association of Durham. 
.00 of this is a reserve accumulated prior to 1949. 
).00 is from the 1949-50 surplus set aside for a home for the ageing. 

$500.00 from the 1951 Budget allocated for work in China. 

$428.57 is from accumulated interest on the above investments. 

Since the $300.00 was definitely set aside for a home for the ageing which was at that 
time only a dream and now that the home is becoming a reality, the Executive Board recom- 
mends that all funds in this savings account, with the exception of the $500.00 earmarked 
for work in China, be given to the Episcopal Home for the Ageing. As of January 1, 1961 
this amounted to $1,228.57. 

Your Board recommends that the $500.00 for China be allocated as follows: 

For Chung Chi College: 

Furnishing three rooms at $35.00 each — total $105.00 

Two, $100 scholarships for Chinese Students 200.00 

For Taiwan , 

One, $200.00 scholarship for a Chinese Student 200.00 

$505.00 

Inasmuch as all of the allocations suggested above are in the same fund, she moved 

that the recommendation of the Executive Board for the disposition of this money in the 

Savings and Loan Association at Durham, N. C, be accepted. The motion was seconded 

and carried. 

Mrs. Wall, for the State Legislative Council, reported that of the four items on the 
Council's final program adopted at the last Annual Meeting three bills are now before the 
Legislature. Migrant workers — aid to whom was the fourth bill — are now being helped. 



22 Seventy-Ninth Annual Report 

She asked that each who believes that capital punishment should be abolished write her 
own legislator in support of abolition of such punishment. A special committee was appointed 
last fall to reassess our membership in the State Legislative Council. This committee will 
have a recommendation ready to be presented at the District meetings in the fall. It will 
then be given out to each Branch so that the Branches can send their delegates to the next 
Annual Meeting prepared to vote on the committee's recommendation. 

Mrs. McKay, Secretary of Personnel and College Work, reported that there are at 
present four full-time College Chaplains, three part-time and one woman College worker in 
the diocese. She stressed the need for religious counselling on the campus, stating that 
religion is not attacked directly, but is assumed to be irrelevant. She urged all branches to 
keep in close touch with their local college students who are away from hem?. 

Mrs. John Clayton Smith reported for Kanuga, describing Kanuga as the center where 
the whole family may go. There are classes, workshops and recreation for all age groups, 
camps for children, conferences for young churchmen and conferences for adults. She urged 
greater support from the Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Carolina. 

Mrs. Lula H. Robinson spoke on behalf of St. Augustine's College. The Chapel, with 
a full-time Chaplain, is the focal point of the college. Students from St. Augustine's go out 
into all the world, each making a contribution wherever he may be. She spoke particularly 
of Cassandra Hanna, an Emma Joy Hall Scholarship student, who has already made a great 
contribution in music. 

Mrs. M. E. Motsinger, United Thank Offering Custodian, in making her report called 
special attention to a recent U.T.O. pamphlet written by our own Mrs. W. J. Gordon. Mrs. 
Motsinger stressed that no woman is excluded from participation in the U.T.O. This offer- 
ing comes not only from those who are blessed materially, but from all womrn. It is truly 
an offering from all women of the world to help all women of the world. The total offering 
for the spring of 1961 is at this date incomplete. 

The total for 1960 $24,822.83 

The total for the Triennium $61,511.00 

The offering at the 7:30 a.m. service on April 12th was $118.00. 

Mrs. Thomas called special attention to two pamphlets in the delegates' packets, both 
written by Episcopal churchwomen of our Diocese, the one by Mrs. Gordon and the other 
by Miss Jill Salinger of St. Stephen's in Durham. 

The report of the Resolution Committee was read by Mrs. Francis O. Clarkson, chair- 
man. The report was accepted as read. 

Mrs. W. Lunsford Long, chairman, gave the report of the Committee on Courtesy 
and Findings. 

After the service of the installation of the new officers, conducted by The Right Reverend 
Richard H. Baker, Mrs. Thomas presented the gavel and the President's cross to Mrs. James 
L. Godfrey. Mrs. Godfrey made a brief speech of acceptance of the office of President. She 
announced that Mrs. William Powell, Church of The Holy Family, Chapel Hill, would serve 
as her Secretary. 

The Right Reverend Richard H. Baker gave his address to the Annual Meeting and 
pronounced the benediction. 

After the singing of hymn 263, the seventy-ninth Annual Meeting of The Episcopal 
Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Carolina was adjourned. 

Sallie Haywood King, Secretary 

RESOLUTIONS 

Resolution Proposed by the Board of the District of Guilford: 
WHEREAS Worship is a primary concern of the Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese 
of North Carolina; and 

WHEREAS the Diocesan Chairman of Worship of the Episcopal Churchwomen fulfills 
a most important function in arranging for Quiet Days, fostering the spiritual life of the 
Churchwomen and serving as a resource person for District and Branch Chairmen of 
Worship; and 

WHEREAS the vital work of the Chairman of Worship goes largely unrecognized out- 
side of the organization of Episcopal Churchwomen because of the omission of her name 
and office from lists of our officers appearing in the Journal of the Convention of the Diocese 
of North Carolina and even on the official stationery of the Episcopal Churchwomen of the 
Diocese of North Carolina; and 



Episcopal Churchwomen 23 

WHEREAS this omission stems from the fact that the Constitution of the Episcopal 
Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Carolina does not include the Chairman of Worship 
among the officers thereof, but lists her as a chairman of one of the standing committees. 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED: That the Episcopal Churchwomen of the 
Diocese of North Carolina assembled in their Annual Meeting of 1961 do call upon their 
President to appoint a committee to draw up amendments to Articles IV, V, VI of their 
Constitution, to make the Chairman of Worship (by this or some other title) one of the 
officers of this organization, prescribe her duties and the time and mode of her election or 
appointment; and to file such proposed amendments with the Diocesan Secretary for the 
mailing of a notice to each Branch at least one month prior to the next Annual Meeting, 
as required by Article X of the Constitution. 

WHEREAS words are inadequate to express our deep thankfulness for the leadership 
of our outgoing President 

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED: That we, the Churchwomen of the Diocese of 
North Carolina, show by a rising vote our thanks to Catharine Thomas for her never tiring 
work as our President, for her real leadership of us, and above all for her gracious gift of 
friendship extended to each one of us. 

Mrs. Francis O. Clarkson, Chairman 
Resolutions Committee. 

COURTESY AND FINDINGS 

As this the 79th Annual Meeting of the Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of 
North Carolina nears an end, we wish to express the thoughtfulness and appreciation that 
each one of us senses. 

The Church of The Holy Comforter has indeed anticipated and provided for our 
every need and wish. Those who have had the responsibility for planning and organizing 
have done their work with care and thoughtfulness. Those who have welcomed the 
stranger within their gates, opened their homes and hearts to us, have made us feel warmth 
and acceptance. 

The ceaseless efforts and charm of our President have left an indelible mark and a 
high standard of excellence. She will ever be held in affectionate remembrance. 

The Executive Board has offered leadership of a high calibre — through their reports, 
as well as those of each of the Diocesan programs and institutions, we have been enabled 
to focus anew on the real concern of the Women of the Church — compassion and love for 
every one of God's children. "Christian Responsibility for Evangelism" is a theme that will 
resound in our ears. 

The aura of happiness and well being evident at Thompson Orphanage has given us 
an understanding that even a house with 70 children can be a home of love and closeness. 
We are sent back to our own firesides with a deepened awareness of our vocation in creating 
Christian families. 

Our new Bishop Coadjutor, The Right Reverend Thomas A. Fraser, has touched our 
spirits and kindled our desires to serve more willingly and manifest the grace we know. 

Our beloved Bishop Baker has been a constant source of guidance and joy; our clergy 
have been supportive and inspiring, and we are grateful to them all. 

It is with renewed vision, with freshened spirits and strengthened minds that we leave 
this meeting — realizing that the prayers and words of all will continue to flow forth in a 
pulsating stream, making known in this world the love of God. 

Mrs. W. Lunsford Long, Jr., Chairman 
Courtesy and Findings Committee 

REPORT OF SECRETARY 

Since the last Annual Meeting I have performed the following duties: 

1. Sent out approximately 530 copies of each of the President's monthly letters to 
Branch Presidents, District Chairmen, Diocesan Officers and others. 

2. Sent letters to the Executive Board giving notice of Board meetings. 

3. Prepared minutes of the Executive Board meetings and mailed copies to the members. 

4. Prepared minutes of the Annual Meeting for the Year Book.

THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 

As can be seen from the accompanying list, the United Thank Offering of the Church- 
women of the Diocese of North Carolina during the year 1960 amounted to $24,822.93, an 
encouraging $750 more than in 1959. For this increase our thanks are due to the inspiring 
efforts of the Chapter, Branch and District Custodians and to the generosity of all the Church- 
women who expressed their thanks in this way. 

A further and vital contribution to the United Thank Offering was made during the 
year by Mrs. William Gordon of Spray who was the author of the National Council's 
leaflet entitled "U.T.O. Accept and Bless". This leaflet, beautifully expressing the very 
heart of the United Thank Offering, will be distributed to all branches in our Diocese in 
1961 and it is very much hoped that all our members will have an opportunity of reading it. 

Also available for programs during the coming year will be a new set of colored 
slides entitled "Joyous Thanksgiving" which show how part of the United Thank Offering 
Funds are used in Overseas Missionary Districts. These may be borrowed at any time from 
your Diocesan Custodian. Further information and program materials, as well as Biue 
Boxes and envelopes are always available from the District Custodians. 

As political and econom'c pressures increase in many parts of the world, so more and 
more requests for help are made to the United Thank Offering. Th.s offering, made by 
Churchwomen in all parts of the world is used to meet needs everywhere, both overseas 
and in this country. It has been said that . . . "Those who use their Blue Boxes are not 
to be thought of as unusual Christians, but as the most practical Christians possible." It 
should be our concern that "All women, everywhere" — and especially in our Diocese — be 
made fully aware of the vast significance of this special offering of "Prayer and Gifts and 
Joyful Service." 

Margaret K. Motsinger (Mrs. M. E., Jr.) 
Diocesan United Thank Offering; Custodian. 



THE CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

1960 saw a good increase in interest, and activity of the Church Periodical Club in 
our Diocese. We increased our number of Branches participating by twenty percent, and our 
contributions to the Books Fund by ten percent. 

We also had two special projects this Spring: Five Branches contributed to a Special 
Fund, which sent 20 copies of the Revised Standard Version of the Bible to St. Matthew's 
Mission, Beaver, Alaska; four others sent 50 Hymnals to the Rev. Thomas G. Cleveland, 
Kodiak Island Mission, Alaska. 

This Fall when our Companion Diocese program gets under way, we will undertake a 
special project for this Missionary Diocese. I'm sure that every Branch will want to have a 
part in this special program. 



Episcopal Churchwomen 43 

The Church Periodical Club will hold its Triennial Meeting for three days prior 
to the General Triennial in Detroit in September. Our Diocese will have a representative at 
this Meeting. 

The theme for the Triennial to be held in Detroit in September is "Even So Send I 
You." Through our magazine subscriptions, our sharing of Bibles, Hymnals, and Prayer 
Books, and our contributions to the Books Fund, we are sending into every Miss.on Field 
of our Church the tools of labor for those who go in the Master's Name. 

Please read your Secretary's Manual, and contact your District or Diocesan Director for 
any information or help needed. 

Sincerely, 

Ethel Gant, Director 



CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

This is not a report or summary of the work of the Secretary of Christian Education, 
but merely a few thoughts and suggestions I have gathered together. It has been most grati- 
fying to have met so many of you at the Spring District Meetings. It's so n.ce to put names 
and faces together, for after all, Christian Education can best be shared when we know 
the people we are working with. Therefore, it is imperative that the Branch Christian 
Education Chairman know and call upon her District Chairman and D<ocesan Chairman 
for new material and suggestions. Only if your needs are expressed am help be given. It 
is impossible to arrange a set program that will be usable for all branches. Each need 
is different and individual plans must be worked out. 

The Mission Study Theme for the coming year is "The Christian Miss on in Latin 
American Countries." This thtme is very pertinent because of our Companion Diocese plan 
with Panama, and a golden opportunity for us to develop this thtme. The National 
Council has prepared a guide "Response to Our Calling" that has been distributed to 
all clergy to help provide a unified parish approach to this theme. Material for this study 
is available from the National Council and Friendship Press. A notice was included in each 
delegates packet at the Annual Meeting and was available at most Distr ct Meetings, so 
look around, become acquainted with the material, and use one of the many suggestions 
available to suit your own Parish need. 

Branches concerned w.ih Bible Study will be interested in the Prc-Assiinblv Stud) 1 
booklet — "Jesus Christ — the Light of the World," issued by the World Council of Churches 
for study in connection with its Third Assembly to be held in New Delhi late this year. 
This booklet provides plans for eight study suggestions and offers an excellent opportunity 
for interdenominational study among the women. 

In your planning for the year — do remember the 60th General Convention and Trien- 
nial Meeting in Detroit in September. The programs will be built around the theme "Even so, 
send I you" (St. John 20:21.) After the Convention, the addresses, devotionals and discus- 
sions on this theme wdl be available. You will hear about the Triennial at your Fall 
District Meetings and these meditations will be a good follow-up. 

I cannot stress enough reading the official publications of the Church, CHURCHWAYS, 
THE EPISCOPALIAN, FINDINGS, AND THE LIVING CHURCH. If you cannot subscribe, 
borrow them from your Church library or rector. There is always something of interest in 
each. 

Christian Education is moving very definitely away from total planning of the past — • 
the new way is to offer new ideas and resource material and that is all: let the women 
choose what meets their needs and interest. In other words, we women are maturing in 
judgement and knowledge and know-how: we no longer have to be spoon-fed. But if this 
is true — we must continue to emphasize leadership training so that the women coming on 
will know the needs of the group. As Episcopal Churchwomen we must care — care enough 
to read and study, to do the best we can to help others learn about God. 

A bibliography of suggested material for programs will be sent to each Branch Chairman 
of Christian Education. Use this, along with program suggestions from United Thank 
Offering, Christian Social Relations, Missions, Worship, and other activities of the Women 
to formulate a well-rounded program for your Branch. Don't forget the Film Library 
the Department of Christian Education has in Raleigh. Many filmstnps are available free, 
or for a small charge from Mr. Jeffress. 

I quote from THE LIVING CHURCH by Theodora Sorg "A good friend, who is a 



44 Seventy-Ninth Annual Report 

clergyman asks me plaintively from time to time why women think of themselves as 
'special'. There's always this talk about women's problems, he says, and the women's 
point of view. Why can't women just be people!" It is precisely because women are 
people, because we are a large segment of the laity of the Church, that we are concerned. 
Our particular concern in Christian Education should be to strive to see that the Christian 
Faith is understood so it will not leave us as spectators, but rather as active participants in 
the struggle of life. "We are not special. We are part of the Church, concerned with its 
mission, involved in its tasks, seeking only to serve it in every way that we can. 

Eileen Stephens Greenwood 



CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 

Unlimited opportunities surround the Secretary of Christian Social Relations. One of 
her important responsibilities, prior to the beginning of our year of study and activity, is 
to lead in the choice of a study and action program appropriate for her branch. Suggestions 
may arise out of local needs or be drawn from suggestions commended to us. Christian 
Social Relations issues and responsibilities are related to all our study and activity. Areas of 
need which fall within its scope and the educational process of building Christian attitudes 
and convictions in human relations are interrelated. They should, together, form the back- 
ground purpose of the branch program. 

Each year for the last five, our National Department of Christian Social Relations has 
shared in the selection by the Division of Life and Work of the National Council of 
Churches of Christ of a coordinated emphasis or theme which it heartily recommends for 
inclusion in our plans. Pertinent materials are prepared. Action suggestions are numerous. 
Our 1960-61 emphasis has been a crucial one — FREEDOM. More specifically stated, it was 
"Christian Responsibility for Freedom." Freedom is a key word today in every language 
in the world. It is a potent word that springs from the heart of the Gospel of Christ. Civil 
and religious liberties are matters of general and worldwide concern. Excellent basic materials 
dealt with all the fundamental freedoms, emphasized religious freedom, placed particular 
emphasis on freedom of the Churches. A few branches were gratified with results of theii 
efforts to develop the theme. However, the materials were not widely used by the women 
of our Diocese. 

Our 1961-62 emphasis has been announced as "The Christian Family and Rapid Social 
Change." Titles of new basic materials have not been published but we will continue to use 
the studies which began with the 1958 Lambeth Conference and its report of "The Family in 
Contemporary Society." They have been assembled in conjunction with preparatory work 
for the North American Conference on Church and Family. As the year progresses, additional 
materials will be furnished, based upon results of the Conference. These promise to be rich 
in content and interest. You will be kept informed. 

Recognizing one of its most pressing responsibilities today is the need to help families 
understand the rapidly changing world about them, the Church has been stressing to us fine 
studies on the subject. Excellent materials have already been widely used. What new focus, 
then, is indicated in the forthcoming studies? The focus on race is an example. In our own 
communities the question of race affects almost every aspect of family life: church, housing, 
jobs, recreation, education, health and welfare. So the new emphasis will be a continuation 
of the freedom theme in that it will relate to Christian family living the world issues of 
peace and freedom for all people. 

The Bulletin, Bulk Mailings, and Churchways will have provided, before this reaches 
you, more adequate direction than is included in the brief bibliography listed herein for 
our emphasis.

SUPPLY 

The women of the Diocese of North Carolina are aware of the changing plan of 
Supply work. In the year 1961 we have and will continue to devote more of our time to 
"Refugee and Relief" work. The Supply department will be asked to collect used good 
clothing to be sent overseas through the Church World Service Center at New Windsor, 
Maryland. Our own institutions, Thompson Orphanage and Tuttle Community Center will 
not suffer because of our participation in this joint endeavor of the various protestant 
churches. 

This United Clothing Appeal is the response of the churches to the world wide need 
for clothings — the need of orphans, widows and refugees — the homeless, dispossessed and 
unwanted. And the clothing they need is in our closets. Our goal is a clothing drive in 
every church — a search in every closet. 

In 1960 — and this report is for 1960 — our assignment from National included articles 
requested for St. Joseph's Mission at Roosevelt, Puerto Rico; Good Samaritan Hospital, 
Charlotte; Thompson Orphanage, Charlotte as well as cash for the Oneida Indian Mission in 
Wisconsin. So small was the sewing allotment to the Puerto Rican Mission that alone the 
District of Mecklenburg completed it. A few receiving blankets for Good Samaritan Hospital 
were also made from material given the Supply Department. Other districts in this diocese 
sewed for Church World Service, making Leprosy gowns as well as garments to be sent to 
Africa, Latin America and the Near and Far East. Your Diocesan Supply Secretary purchased, 
packed and delivered material for the sewing program in Mecklenburg. She also purchased, 
packed and shipped more than $400.00 worth of ready made garments such as sweaters, 
blue jeans, brassiers and socks for St. Joseph's mission. The women of this diocese have 
sent several hundred pounds of good used clothing to Thompson Orphanage and an equal 
amount to Tuttle Community Center, Raleigh. Both these institutions count on us for 
clothing and other assistance. 

In spite of the changes taking place in this department the objectives remain very much 
the same: 

1. To complete the national assignment. 

2. To furnish Thompson Orphanage, Charlotte, with new and used clothing. 

3. To send good used clothing to Tuttle Community Center, Raleigh and to Chinch 
World Services, New Windsor, Maryland. 

4. To participate in the sewing program. 

5. To have each Branch President report to the Diocesan President on the Branch member- 
ship and on the request for sewing. 

6. To financially support the work of the Supply Department by sending fifty cents per 
member to the Diocesan Treasurer. 

7. To have each District Supply Secretary serve as a link between Diocesan Supply Secre- 
tary and the Branch Secretaries. 

•8. To have each Supply Secretary plan for the completion of the Supply Assignment, 
I.E. — To see that articles are sewed, pressed, packed and shipped. To make arrangements 
for the spring and fall ingatherings of good used clothing. To send reports concerning 
Supply Work.

COLLEGE— A MESSAGE TO CHRISTIANS 

The college years are crucial years for young people. Many of them have left home 
for the first time. They are thrown headlong into a completely new environment. Whole 
new worlds of thought are thrust upon them. They find it difficult to evaluate the often 
conflicting ideas which are being presented to them. They mature gradually in philosophy, 
chemistry, and economics, but may remain as 12 year olds in religion (if they worship or 
think of it) without some guidance from Church, priest or chaplain. Without help they 
may become either religious schizophrenics or drop God altogether. More people leave 
the church during college years than at any other time. We may say that at the present 
time, a young person is luc\y if he can remain at home in religion as he becomrs a part 
of the intellectual life of an academic community. 

There is a new and growing mission to graduate students, married students and those 
in medical and legal fields. Problems here are vast and run the gamut from real poverty 
and marital difficulties to the fragmentation of one's existence into a number of unrelated 
and often meaningless components. The Church Society for College Work, by doing pioneer 
work in this area, has proven the need for and is showing us the challenges of this- 
specialized ministry. 

There is no time of life more full of change than the college years. Someone has 
called it the "crisis of identity" at its height. Most of the important decisions of life are 
made during these years, often including the choice of a wife or husband. The difficulties 
attendant upon failure in college, unmet, can wreck a life. The number of emotionally 
disturbed young people is amazing — and alarming. Suicide, and the tendency toward it, 
is not unheard of in this group. Religious counselling in the university is essential. 

There is also on the campus, the task of ministering to the faculties and administration. 
A minister turned professor has said "When I became a professor, I put my religious beliefs 
in a drawer, and when I opened it again, they were no longer there. Religion is not often 
attacked directly, it is just assumed to be irrelevant." 

This, then, is the realm of life from which the leaders of tomorrow will be drawn. 
A Southern California chaplain puts it this way. "The campus is one of the greatest 
missionary fields in the world today. A community of students, a parish, a diocese or a 
Church, that devotes its energies ministering unto itself will not attract to its side strong 
people, will not produce within itself unselfish lives, and will lose the Holy Spirit whose 
nature it is to be outgoing." 

What are our parishes, what is our Church, our diocese doing about this challenge? 
I am forced to report that by and large we seldom see the need, much less meet the 
requirements. 

The Church, like our present day culture, has for its by-word, conformity. We are alL 
like as peas in a pod, and it is virtually impossible to distinguish us from our pagan, 
agnostic and atheistic neighbors. He who would cry out, even in love, is silenced, if not 
forcibly, then by the awful realization that he cannot even communicate with his neighbor. 
As Stinnette says, there is a brick wall built around most of us, with just a sign saying. 
"There used to be an opening here"; and again "most Christians are dead, the announcement 
simply hasn't been made as yet." 

There is need of a vision, of a "reaching out"; a rediscovery of what it means in 
terms of personal sacrifice to be a Christian, unambiguous convictions about God and about 
man. 

I am asking you to do these things: put college work in your parish and Church women's, 
budgets: freely and gladly give your curate or priest ample time to do college work if he 
is a part time chaplain; see that he has funds to attend a conference now and then, or to. 
bring in a speaker, or to hire secretarial help; or take on a particular chaplain and school 
for your special responsibility. Keep up with your parishes' college students; love them.. 
pray for them, listen to them. "Round about us beings live their lives — everywhere we turn,, 
there is being" — let us stretch out our hands, for you and I are the keepers of the future 
of Christianity — and probably the world.

WORSHIP 

Last week as I was catching up with the January and February issues of the news 
magazines, I found myself forced into a corner confronted by three crucial questions that 
refused to be denied answers. And what had I read to provoke such questions? 

First, in the Atlantic Monthly — an article by a doc:or describing the declining moral 
standards of our youth. 

In Time magazine — a frank declaration that "Anxiety is the dominant fact of modern 
life — an era that speaks of God grown silent." 

In Fortune magazine — the statement by a leading theologian "Christianity amounts to 
little more in the lives of Americans than a vague spirit of friendliness — people are willing 
to support churches provided these churches demand no real sacrifices and preach no 
exacting doctrines." 

Finally and perhaps providing a key to our predicament a cartoon — sadder than funny 
in the New Yorker — portraying a husband and wife visibly at odds with each other. The 
husband says to his irate wife: "The trouble with you, dear, you don't know how to 
conduct yourself in relationship." 

Declining moral standards — Crippling anxiety — Spiritual anemia — Chronic broken 
relationships. 

Can I as a professing Christian merely shrug my shoulders and close my eyes to these 
indictments or must I ask myself — as a professing Christian, am I making an effective witness 
in a world whose values are being suffocated by materialism? 

Am I as a member of the church communicating the outgoing love of God in such 
a way as to proclaim the living Jesus Christ? 

Are we as Episcopal churchwomen merely giving lip service to our profession that wor- 
ship provides the center from which all our activities proceed? 

Perhaps now is the imperative and appropriate time to do some hard thinking about our 
concepts of worship. 

I expect a simple way to do this would be to drop in on Sally Jones and Mary Porter — 
two unreal ladies from whom we might learn some very real truths. 

First, let's drop by Sally Jones'. Sally is married to a very successful business man, is 
the mother of three active children. There are not enough hours in the day for Sally to 
meet her many social and civic committments — bridge club, book club, dance committee. 
P.T.A. only begins the list. In spite of her busy schedule, last June she agreed to serve 
as Branch Worship Chairman. 

It is late at night — the night before the general monthly meeting. Let us listen as 
Sally thinks aloud: "I'm so tired tonight, but I can't go to bed until I find a suitable 
prayer for the meeting tomorrow. I don't know why I ever hesitated to take this job. It 
involves so little really. We always have so much important business to transact at the 
meetings that usually there's no time left for the devotions." 

"Everybody stays so busy working in the kitchen or on money making projects, we just 
don't have time to have prayer groups or study groups. We have had such a successful 
year. We raised over $3000.00 and are going to use the entire amount to redecorate the 
ladies' parlour. Maybe I won't have to give the devotional tomorrow after all. There'll 
probably be so much discussion and disagreement over the color scheme for the parlour." 

So we leave Sally Jones as she reaches for her second tranquilizer knowing tomorrow 
will be another busy day. 

Now we go to another part of town and drop in on Mary Porter. 

Mary has been working three days a week since her husband died of lung cancer two 
years ago. She has two daughters in high school and a son in college. 

Because of the numerous demands on her time by the children and her job, Mary 
has given up many social and civic committments. However, this year with many reser- 
vations and deep sense of inadequacy, Mary accepted the responsibilities of Branch Worship 
Chairman. 

Tonight she is preparing a special program on worship for the general meeting next 
week. Let's listen to Mary as she thinks aloud: 

"I'm so tired tonight — before I begin working on the program for next week, I must 
have a quiet time. Why is it such an effort to stop everything and be quiet? And yet I 
know I must — I must be quiet with God so He can open the eyes of my heart to the real 
needs of my children, my neighbors, the people at the office and church, and somehow I 



Seventy-Ninth Annual Report 



do know as I become aware of their needs, God's grace gives me the love to reach out 
to them." 

"Maybe this is what worship really is — whether I'm saying my prayers alone — or 
praying with the children or in church — Worship opens me up to receive God's will for 
me, His purpose for me, and His outgoing love." 

"J. B. Phillips hit the nail on the head in his last book when he said 'The deep funda- 
mental problems of human life are not intellectual or technical but in the last resort are 
problems of human relationship.' So many people are troubled and lonely because they 
don't know what God's love can do to a broken Relationship." 

"There is so much human misery in this world that needs redeeming by God's love." 

"I'm convinced the Quiet Day, prayer groups and Bible classes are helping the ladies 
to find a new meaning in their worship experiences." 

"For the first time in years the Church women are bringing people to confirmation 
classes and they seem to be giving more money and I'm sure in many cases it's sacrificial 
giving. We will be able to send over $2500 to Africa for helping with the education of 
seminary students." 

"It seems that the degree of our committment to God in worship shows forth most 
clearly in the works we undertake." 

So we leave Mary Porter and another concept of worship, aware that worship not only 
opens our hearts to those around us but stretches our hearts even to the far corners of the 
world. Worship is not only a way of life but worship is even evangelism. 

Lucile A. McKee (Mrs. James) 
Chairman of Worship 

ALTAR WORK AND SERVICE OF EXCHANGE 

Altar Guild work is essential to the beauty and smooth conduct of the church service. 
Worship can be stimulated by the perfection of the work of the Altar Guild. This service 
is under the supervision of the Rector and is offered reverently to God, to bring us closer 
to Him. 

Workshops on altar work have been given in three districts this year. Letters have 
been written and money given towards equiping mission altars. Several articles have been 
received and distributed through the Service of Exchange. We have quite a few new 
missions in our Diocese and several old ones that are needing help. Please contact me if 
you have any usable and unneeded articles to donate. I will see that they are placed to 
the best advantage. 

If you do not have an organized Altar Guild in your parish, please speak to your 
rector about organizing one. This can be a combination study, prayer, and service group, It 
can meet regularly to study altar work or sew for your own parish or for other parishes 
that need altar linens and hangings. It can also be a prayer group. 

St. Augustine says, "The end of man is to Praise, Reverence and Serve God and thereby 
save his soul." We must catch the meaning and feeling of worship of God, or our work 
is of no use to Him or to ourselves. We must be reverent, dependable, on time, and informed 
about our church and our work. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Josephine King Drake (Mrs. J. W.) 

Chairman of Altar Work and Service of Exchange 

EPISCOPAL RADIO-TV 

At last we offer you a professionally produced radio series so identified with the local 
parish and with such flexibility of scheduling it is, in effect, a local program without the 
headaches of local production. 'THE EPISCOPAL QUARTER HOUR is a series of 13 pro- 
grams featuring some of the great preachers of the Anglican Communion. Designed for use 
with local announcements, it may be tied in with your on-going parish program. You may- 
use it to fill broadcasting obligations or opportunities (Morning Devotions, etc.). It will be 
useful in communities without resident clergy or where new Churches are to be established. 
You will think of other uses to fit special needs. 

Beyond the 15 minutes on the air there is purpose almost as vital as the program itself: 



Episcopal Churchwomen 49 

the in-depth follow up to establish personal contact with the radio audience and to 
motivate the unchurched to a church. Copies of talks and Prayer Boo\s will be offered free 
on the air. They will be sent by us upon request of listeners. Reports of listener response 
will be sent to you so that personal calls may be made as indicated. THE EPISCOPAL 
QUARTER HOUR is designed to help reinforce the parish ministry. 

What is the cost? $50.00. This covers furnishing: 13 tapes to one station; promotional 
materials to you; follow-up materials to listeners; report of listener response to you. The 
nominal charge is possible because production expense is underwritten by the Fourth Pro- 
vince. Tapes are the property of the Episcopal Radio-TV Foundation; are not for sale; are 
offered on a rental basis for one-time broadcast; must be returned by station following use. 
We pay postage both ways. 

Upon request, a kit gives you everything you need to get the program under way. With 
a personal presentation, we are confident your station will welcome THE EPISCOPAL 
QUARTER HOUR for sustained public service programming. 

For additional information, please contact me at the address below.

MISSIONS 

"Open the heart but a little, and God begins His miracles. And so it is that what we 
do is what you have done, and what you are we have the privilege of carrying out." This 
profound message to Churchwomen from a missionary overseas touches the core of the 
relationship between the people of God at home and those on any mission field. When the 
Chairman of Missions understands and accepts the implications of the message she is a 
leader ready to hold before others the high destiny and purpose to which she is called: "not 
to fill them with hollow formulas but with visions that are portals of creative action." She 
will hear with new sensitivity the call to ministry and mission in the 1961-64 Triennial 
Theme, "Even so, send I you." 

She will forge and continually strengthen, by every means of which she can think, a 
special link between the Branch and Missionaries for whom it has special affection and 
concern, three or four by assignment to her District, many by other ties. She is the chief 
communicator between Churchwomen and Missionaries on the field. She is also the chief 
communicator between Churchwomen and our six retired Diocesan Missionaries. 

Many missionaries strive to make the life of the communities in which they work live 
to us through occasional long letters. The Missions' Chairman will find a quiet time and 
place to digest these, to see in her imagination the light their writers shed abroad. She will 
edit and revise the letters to shed light herself on our meetings with vivid reviews of their 
contents. She will put life into regular individual and group replies to help combat the 
dangers of loneliness which saps the strength and weakens the power of ministry. 

The Missions' Chairman will pray fervently, with special intent, "Make us so thankful 
... to make Him known to all nations," and "Give us greater zeal for thy Kingdom. . . 
that the earth may be filled with the knowledge of Thy glory." Intercessory prayer is never 
easy, but neither can it be too hard if we consistently practice it, using THE CALENDAR 
OF PRAYER FOR MISSIONS as a foundation stone. These prayers are such a tremendous 
force in spreading the Kingdom and so vital to their welfare that no missionary ever fails 
to ask for them! Neither do they fail to pray for us! 

She sees to the contributions for our corporate monetary Christmas gift to diocesan 
affiliated missionaries. A specific objective this year is to encourage Branches to review their 
budget allowances for this remembrance for the very wonderful reasons that we have more 
missionaries to remember and that we have in most places more members to share in it. 

She will learn about the fields on which the Church is at work. In collaboration with 
the Secretary of Christian Education she will plan to present pertinent information at ap- 
propriate points in the educational program on the why of missions and on lands and 
persons under study.

REPORT OF REPRESENTATIVE 
TO THE STATE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL 

At our last Annual Meeting, the Episcopal Churchwomen approved five items on the 
tentative agenda of the State Legislative Council. 

Four items were adopted on the Council's final program. Three of these are now in 
the hopper. By Special Delivery from the Executive Secretary of the Council I am informed 
on the status of the bills and now report: 

1. The bill clarifying the law relating to the licensing of Day Care Facilities (S. B. 68) 
has been referred to a sub-committee. We feel hopeful about the ultimate outcome of this 
for most of the members of the committee think day care facilities should be licensed by 
the State Board of Public Welfare, but they think minimum requirements for licensing should 
be spelled out in the law. We are hopeful that a good substitute bill will result. 

2. Mr. W. C. Harris, Jr., Representative from Wake County, has introduced a bill, at 
the request of the North Carolina Clerks of Superior Court, to increase the widow's allot- 
ment from $750 to $1,000; the children's allotment from $250 to $350; and the age of 
children eligible for the allotment from 15 to 17. 

3. Nothing is being done concerning the elimination of residence requirements on 
health and welfare services for needy people. There is no plan for action on this matter, 
since Federal Legislation is pending. 

4. We have waited a long time for the opportunity to do something to help migrant 
labor in North Carolina. At last two bills have been introduced at the request of the 
Governor's Committee on Migrant Labor, and we are supporting them. One is S.B. 136 
entitled an Act regulating the Transportation of Migratory Farm Workers. It gives authority 
to enforce and make reasonable rules and regulations for the transportation of migrant 
workers to the North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles. The rules shall establish 
minimum standards for brakes, lighting equipment, steering mechanisms, a maximum 
number of passengers, adequate rest stops, eating accommodations, etc. 

The other bill is S.B. 127 entitled an Act regulating the Sanitation of Agricultural 
Labor Camps. This says that any person operating an Agricultural Labor Camp must have 
a permit from the local Health Department. The Health Director of this department must 
see that the camp meets minimum standards of sanitation to be set up by the State Board 



54 Seventy-Ninth Annual Report 

of Health. The standards shall deal with the water supply, sewage disposal, garbage dis- 
posal, sleeping quarters, laundry and bathing facilities of the residents of such camps. This 
bill, in other words, gives the State Board of Health rather broad powers for setting up 
standards of sanitation that must be observed in migrant labor camps. 

Concerning these Bills, I received from Durham, a copy of a Resolution passed 
by the Episcopal Churchwomen of St. Philip's, Durham. It undcrgirds our action of last year 
and endorses the Bills now being considered, which may improve the conditions for migrant 
workers. This Resolution was sent to their legislators. We. your Legislative Committee, 
commend this action to all of you. 

The dropped fifth item was for "Legislative Authorization of a Commission to Study 
the Laws relating to Capital Punishment." This was initiated by us. It was approved by 18 
member organizations, vetoed by one. 

At this time there is action concerning Capital Punishment in our state. A Bill for the 
abolition of Capital Punishment in North Carolina has been introduced by Mr. W. C. 
Harris Jr., of Wake County. Mr. Harris is a layman of Christ Church, Raleigh. It is now 
in committee. 

At this time there is action concerning Capital Punishment in our church. The Depart- 
ment of Christian Social Relations of the National Council has recently (in March) sent 
out a 20 page report to each of our Bishops, urging the abolition of the Death Penalty. 

At this time the action which your Legislative Committee asks, is — not that we shall 
pass a resolution, or lift one from the table, but simply that, as many of you as believe that 
Capital punishment is wrong, shall write to vour own legislators in support of Mr. Harris' 
Bill. 

Last fall Catherine Thomas, our President, appointed a special Committee to re-assess 
our membership in the State Legislative Council. This committee is made up of a woman 
from each District, a representative from the Board, our President-elect, and the three mem- 
bers of your Legislative Committee. We have worked and we continue to work. We will 
have a recommendation ready to be presented at the District meetings in the fall. It will 
then be given out to each Branch so that the Branches can send their delegates to next 
Annual Meeting prepared to vote on our recommendation.

INTERRACIAL COMMITTEE 

It is with sincere pleasure that I address you in behalf of our Diocesan Interracial Com- 
mittee and particularly in behalf of the approximately 350 active minority members 



Episcopal Churchwomen 55 

engaged in support of our program of study and activity in seventeen branches in the 
Diocese. 

Although in one or two instances there is hardly more than the semblance of a 
branch organization, and although several groups have with difficult)', maintained branch 
status, no branch has been declared inactive during the year just ending. 

Fifteen of our seventeen negro branches have fulfilled the financial obligation for 
Central Fund and Supply. Twelve have been included in the ascending scale pledge toward 
our Diocesan Budget. In this regard, may I say that we recognize that all groups share 
equally as branches and members in the benefits and services provided by the budget. We, 
therefore, hope with some justification, that this year we shall see the number increased by 
several additional pledges. 

We have experienced some disappointment in other areas where progress and develop- 
ment are not so readily measured. Accompanying the wisdom and vision which characterized 
the dissolution of the Negro District in 1955 was the admission of inevitable adjustments. To 
have expected these adjustments to be speedy would have been unrealistic. We are con- 
fident that real progress has been made, however, and that it will be more rapid. We have 
been grateful for the opportunity to work in this closer relationship. 

Our greatest handicap, we feel, is the reluctance or actual inability of many able mem- 
bers to assume offices in the Women's Division at any level. Such a large number of our 
members are in the ranks of the employed. That the ever increasing number of employed 
women in all groups is a factor which is taken more and more into account in our over-all 
planning of the women's work is especially encouraging to us and should benefit us parti- 
cularly. We are further hampered by a circumstance involving our clergy. Most of them are 
attempting to carry on the work of two or three parishes or missions and find it physically 
impossible to give sufficient regular attention to the work of the women. 

Diocesan and District Officers have been generous in their offers of help. We admit 
that we have not taken full advantage of their proffered assistance by inviting them to our 
branches more often than we have. The Negro Branches need the support of the District 
and Diocesan Organizations and of their leaders. We need information and exchange of 
ideas to improve our understanding of all phases of the work to the end that our branches 
may more nearly contribute their proportionate share of the total effort. Greater effort must 
be made by us to have more representative attendance from all our branches at all D. strict 
Meetings. Maintenance of regular contact with District and Diocesan Officers will do much 
to help our branches develop into strong working groups. 

We need your help. We want to give ours. 

Mrs. James Peeler 

Chairman, Interracial Committee 



KANUGA REPORT 

Question: Where do we, as a diocese, own a Conference Center to which my whole family 
can go together for fun and fellowship and worship? 

Answer: WHERE BUT AT KANUGA? To either of the two Family Conferences, each 
lasting one week where the family life together in a Christian atmosphere is the prime 
factor. Family Conference offers classes for parents, classes for children, fun time to- 
gether, and worship together. Or the entire family may go to the 10 day Adult Con- 
ference, with the children participating in the Children's Mission and mother and 
father taking the courses of their choice in the conference. 

Question: Where may I go this summer that I may take courses that will help me not only 
in the particular field in which I may happen to be working in the Parish — but also 
courses I've always wanted to take for a better understanding of my church and my 
faith? 

Answer: WHERE BUT AT KANUGA? For at the Adult Conference such a wide variety 
of courses is offered that there is always something of particular interest to you. Are 
you interested in the work of the women of the church — there's a course for you. Are 
you interested in Church Music — there's a course for you. Are you interested in the prob- 
lem of Christianity vs Communism — there's a course for you. Is your husband interested 
in the Laymen's Work — then there is a course for him. Are you interested in a thorough 
study of the Prophets — there's a course for you. Are you interested in a study of 
Personal Religion — there's a course for you. Or would you like courses in Southern 



56 Seventy-Ninth Annual Report 

Church History, or the Ministry of Healing, or Basic Concepts of the Christian Faith — 
there's a course on each of these subjects. 

And now the next question naturally is — Where can I find such courses taught by the most 
able men in the field in our church today? 

Answer: WHERE BUT AT KANUGA? The Headhner for both Adult Conference and 
the Conference on Christian Education this year is none other than the Rev. Dr. 
Charles R. Stinnette, Professor of Pastoral Theology at Union Theological Seminary 
in New York. The teacher for the Laymen's course is the Rev. Howard Harper, Execu- 
tive Director, General Division of Laymen's Work — certainly the expert in that field. 
Others on the faculty included some of the Bishops of North and South Carolina. 
clergy from our diocese and neighboring dioceses, plus dedicated laymen and women — 
all experts in the area in which they teach. 

Question: Is there anything at Kanuga except the various conferences? Where can I go 
with my family for two or three weeks in the mountains and live together with them 
in a trulv Christian atmosphere? 

Answer: WHERE BUT AT KANUGA? For during the Guest Period in late July and August 
Kanuga is run as a summer resort hotel. You and your family may rent a cottage or 
stay in the hotel proper and have nothing to worry about but thoroughly enjoying 
the swimming, the fishing, the tennis, the golf at a nearby golf course, the beautiful 
hikes in and around the Kanuga property, the plays at the Flat Rock Playhouse, or 
the entertainment planned for you each night at Kanuga if you want it. 

Question: Where can I find a Conference Center of which I am truly a part — in which I 
might feel that I have had a real part in building the Christian ideal? 

Answer: WHERE BUT AT KANUGA? This is a Diocesan institution and we in the Diocese 
of North Carolina are morally obligated to give for the support of Kanuga, $7,000.00 
a year. This is our suggested fair share of the $25,000.00 needed yearly in order to 
properly operate this OUR Conference Center. This $7,000.00 is not expected from any 
one source, but it is to be made up from yearly pledges from the diocesan budget, 
the budget of the churchwomen, parish budgets, branch budgets, and pledges from 
individuals. In 1960, from all sources, this diocese gave only $2,657.00. You must do 
your share to bring up this total. I hope by telling you these things about Kanuga to so 
arouse your interest that Kanuga will be placed generously in our various budgets, 
and then you will have a real part in this ideal. 
Yes, Kanuga is many things to many people. Camps for the children — and these 

facilities are being greatly expanded in order to take care of a great many more youngsters 

by the building of an entirely new camp (including it's own lake) for the boys. This 

campsite for the boys will be read)' for use next summer. Conferences for the Youn^ 

Churchmen and Adults, Families together at their own Conferences, And Guest Period 

for everyone are included in the facilities. 

Kanuga has been called a Mount of Holy Privilege — and rightly so. So the final 

question is — Where will I see vou, my old friends and my new friends this summer?

April 6, 1962 
To the Episcopal Churchwomen of the 
Diocese of North Carolina 

Dear Fellow Workers: 

There' are few opportunities offered to me to address so many people 
as will be reading this Year Book. I welcome it with a great deal of 
gratitude. 

It is interesting that the theme this year is the text used by Bishop 
Beverley Dandridge Tucker, Jr., when he preached the sermon at my 
Consecration on Saint Paul's Day in 1951. "As the Father hath 
sent me, even so send I you." (Saint John 20:21) 

This text gives us all a mission. It certainly should lift us above 
the level of considering our membership in the church a means of 
maintenance. The Church should never have concern for itself. When 
we 1 think of our task as maintaining the Church we are contributing 
to a self-concern for the Church. The Church exists for mission. 
Every member, every parish, every diocese, every denomination, in 
fact the' whole Church must accept the commission inherited from the 
past to be sent into all the world to preach the Gospel to every crea- 
ture, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and 
of the Holy Ghost. 

It gives me a great deal of joy to realize that no part of the Church 
emphasizes the mission of the Church so much as the Episcopal 
Churchwomen. Phillips Brooks said, "Show me a church that is not 
interested in missions and I will show you a church that is de'ad." 

This leads me to rejoicing that there is a high degree of vitality in 
the being and in the program of the Episcopal Churchwomen of the 
Diocese of North Carolina. 

Faithfully yours, 
Richard H. Baker 
Bishop of North Carolina 



Episcopal Churchwomen 



PRAYERS 




PRAYERS FOR EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN 

Almighty God, our heavenly Father, bless, we pray Thee, our work for 
the extension of Thy Kingdom, and make us so thankful for the precious gift 
to us of Thy beloved Son, that we may pray fervently, labor diligently, and 
give liberally to make Him known to all nations as their Saviour and their 
King through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, whose love reacheth unto the world's end, and who didst 
send Thy blessed Son to redeem all mankind help us, we pray Thee so to reveal 
Thy love in prayer and work and stewardship, that by Thy spirit all nations 
and people may be baptized into one body, even as all are redeemed by one 
Saviour; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

PRAYER FOR MISSIONS 
Almighty God, help us we pray Thee, to shed abroad the light of Thy 
Church in all the world. Give us greater zeal for Thy Kingdom, that we may 
offer abundantly our prayers, our work, and our gifts ; so that the earth 
may be filled with the knowledge of Thy glory, as the waters cover the sea, 
through Thy Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

FOR GUIDANCE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT 

O God, forasmuch as without Thee we are not able to please Thee, mercifully 
grant that Thy Holy Spirit in all things direct and rule our hearts; through 
Christ our Lord. Amen. 

PRAYER FOR HUMAN RELATIONS 

O God, our heavenly Father, who hast created all men after Thy likeness, 
we beseech Thee to incline Thine ear to us as we ask Thy help in doing our 
duty as Christian citizens and as members of Thy Holy Church. We acknow- 
ledge our many transgressions of Thy righteous law and especially our failure to 
see Thine image in all Thy children for whose sake Thy Son was content to 
die. Grant that we may follow in the steps of Him with whom there was no 
respect of persons. 

Make us ready to acknowledge the Truth as it stands written in Thy Holy 
Word. Give us courage in our thinking and honestly in our decisions. Lift us 
above self-interest and prejudice and whatsoever else may hinder us from a just 
and righteous dealing with our neighbor. Guide with thy wisdom those to 
whom Thou hast committed the responsibility of government, that all things 
pertaining to the relationship of man with man may be settled upon the sure 
foundation of Thy Holy Will as made known to us in Thy Son, Jesus Christ 
our Lord. Amen. 

—The Rt. Rev. Edwin A. Penick, D.D. 



Eightieth Annual Report 



PRAYER FOR CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 

Jesus, our Master and our friend, who claimest our service through the 
needs of our neighbors; Grant us so to see Thy image in all our fellow creatures 
that in serving mankind we may minister to Thee, the living Saviour of the 
world. Grant to each one of us, that we may do our part in bringing about 
an order of society where there is no just cause for discontent or bitterness of 
spirit, and where every person may be enabled to come to the fullness of per- 
fection for which he was made, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

FOR THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 

O Lord, Our Heavenly Father, we pray Thee to send forth more laborers 
into Thy harvest, and to grant them Thy special grace for every need. Guard 
and guide the workers in the field, and draw us into closer fellowship with them. 
Dispose the hearts of all women everywhere to give gladly as Thou hast given 
to them. Accept from grateful hearts our United Thank Offering of prayer, 
and gifts, and joyful service; and bless it to the coming of Thy Kingdom, 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Accept, Father, this joyful sacrifice of thanksgiving and praise, and bless 
these gifts to the setting forward of Thy Kingdom ; that as we have gratefully 
received the benefits Thy bounty has bestowed, so we may cheerfully share 
them with Thy children in all the world; for his sake whose life and death and 
rising to life again were a song of praise to Thee, Thou Most Holy, our 
Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen. 

FOR CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 
God, who hast sent Thy beloved Son to be unto us the Way, the Truth 
and the Life; grant that we, looking unto Him may set forward the teaching 
power of Thy Church, to the nurture of Thy children, the increase of Thy 
Kingdom and the glory of Thy Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

THE PRAYER FOR THE SUPPLY WORK 

Almighty God, who hast taught us by Thy Son, Jesus Christ, that it is 
more blessed to give than it is to receive, look with favor, we beseech Thee, 
upon the supply work of Thy Church, especially in this Diocese. Touch our 
hearts with compassion for the poor, the sick, and homeless, and make us strong 
to lift their burdens with our ready gifts and service; Through Jesus Christ, 
our Lord. Amen. 

PRAYER FOR THE THOMPSON ORPHANAGE 

Almighty God, who art the Father of the fatherless, send Thy blessings 
upon the Thompson Orphanage, instituted in Thy name. Give patience and 
wisdom to the officers, teachers and matrons of this home, that they may faith- 
fully discharge the duties committed to their charge. Let the boys and girls 
grow in grace and earnestness, day by day. Strengthen their bodies, enlighten 
their minds, purify their hearts and sanctify their wills. Bless all who have 
contributed to this institution, and raise up, we pray Thee, a never-failing 
succession of benefactors whose names may be perpetuated through all genera- 
tions, as a blessed memory, and their good deeds be accepted; through Jesus 
Christ our Lord. Amen. 

FOR THE EVERY MEMBER CANVASS 
God our Father, who providest for Thy children in advance of their needs, 
bless we pray the work of our Every Member Canvass, and grant us all to 
share in it with glad and willing hearts for the sake of thy Kingdom, through 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



Episcopal Churchwomen 



FOR DIOCESAN MISSIONARIES 

O Lord and Heavenly Father, without who we can do no good thing, but 
with whose help even Thy little ones go forth as the mighty, we beseech Thee 
to prosper the work of all Thy missionaries, wherever they may be (and especially 

the work of Thy servant ). Grant them the wisdom to know 

and the strength to do Thy will, and bless them with the hope and consolation 
of Thy heavenly promises, for the sake of Thy Son, Our Saviour, Jesus Christ. 
Amen. 

FOR PERSONNEL 

Our Father, if it be Thy will, put it into the heart of some young man or 
young woman of this parish to choose one of the many vocations within the 
Church for his or her life work, whether it be in our own land or overseas. 
We pray Thee help each one of us, whatever our calling, to practice it as be- 
comes a Christian in Thy name and with Thy guidance. Amen. 

NOONDAY PRAYERS 

Blessed Saviour, who at this hour didst hang upon the Cross stretching 
forth Thy loving arms; grant that all mankind may look upon Thee and be 
saved. Amen. 

Blessed Lord, inspire our hearts and the hearts of all men everywhere with 
the love of God and of our fellowmen, that we may be worthy of world peace. 
This we pray in Jesus' name. Amen. 

FOR WORLD PEACE 

Almighty God, from who all thoughts of truth and peace proceed; kindle, 
we pray Thee, in the hearts of all men the true love of peace, and guide with 
Thy strong and peaceful wisdom those who take counsel for the nations of the 
earth, that in tranquility Thy Kingdom may go forward, till the earth shall be 
filled with the knowledge of thy love; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

FOR CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

O Lord Jesus Christ, Who art the Light of the World, pour out, we 
beseech Thee, upon all Thy servants Thy Holy Spirit of Wisdom and under- 
standing that they may know the hope of Thy calling, the riches of Thine 
inheritance in the saints, and the greatness of Thy power to us who believe. 
More especially we pray Thee to direct and prosper the Church Periodical Club 
that in all its prayer and labor it may be enabled to make the light of Thy 
glory shine forth in the dark places of the earth. And do Thou of Thy mercy 
and grace stablish Thy Church in the truth of Thy Gospel, who livest and 
reignest with the Father and the Holy Spirit ever One God, world without end. 
Amen. 

FOR USE BEFORE AND AT THE TIME OF THE ELECTION 
OF OFFICERS 

Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can enable us to fulfill 
the Will of God, teach us, we pray Thee, the dignity of our work as church- 
women, and give us grace to choose as our leaders those whom Thou dost call 
to Thy faithful service. To those so chosen give a spirit of reverence in the 
exercise of their office, and to all of us a deep sense of our obligation in the 
discharge of every duty, to do all to the glory of God through Jesus Christ 
our Lord. Amen. 

BENEDICTION 

May the blessings of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy 
Spirit, rest upon us and upon all work and worship done in His name. May He 
give us light to guide us, courage to support us, and love to unite us, now and 
forevermore. Amen.

SERVICE OF 

INSTALLATION OF OFFICERS FOR THE 

EPISCOPAL CHURCFIWOMEN 

Let those who have been elected stand before the Bishop and then let him 
say: 

It is right and fitting that those who have been duly elected as Officers of 
the Episcopal Churchwomen, Diocese of North Carolina, should be formally 
received and admitted into their respective offices in your presence; and that 
we should ask the blessings of God upon them for their support and guidance in 
the performance of the duties which you have laid upon them. 

Lord, save these Thy servants, 
Who put their trust in Thee. 
Send them help from the holy place, 
And evermore mightily defend them, 
O Lord, hear our prayer. 
And let our cry come unto Thee. 
Let us pray. 

Our Father . . . 

Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings, with Thy most gracious favour, and 
further us with Thy continual help; that in all our works begun, continued and 
ended in Thee, we may glorify Thy holy name, and finally by Thy mercy, obtain 
everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, the giver of all good gifts; give Thy Grace, we humbly 
beseech Thee, to these Thy servants who have been chosen to serve Thee in the 
special work for which they have been selected; grant unto them zeal and 
earnestness in the performance of their office; wisdom and strength to meet 
each day their task; and love in the doing of it; and give them the vision to 
see their opportunities for service, to the glory of Thy great name and the 
benefit of Thy Holy Church; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Bless us, God, with the vision of Thy Being and Thy Beauty, that in 
the strength of it we may work without haste and without rest ; through Jesus 
Christ our Lord. 

I receive and admit you to the office of Be faithful, 

zealous, sincere and humble in all your tasks, and may the Grace of the Lord 
Jesus Christ and the love of God our Father and the guiding fellowship of the 
Holy Spirit be with you evermore. Amen. 

BENEDICTION 

The Father, Son and Holy Ghost bless, preserve and keep you, in your 
work, in your worship, this day and always, through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 



12 Eightieth Annual Report 



OBJECTIVES FOR EPISCOPAL CHURCHWOMEN OF THE 
DIOCESE OF NORTH CAROLINA, 1962-63 

The dictionary defines the word "objective" when used as a noun as "some- 
thing aimed at, an object or end desired". What are we aiming at as Church- 
women? Do we really have a common goal on which we are all agreed, which 
is clearly defined and well understood? Or do many of our problems stem 
from conflicting conceptions of the proper role and function of the Episcopal 
Churchwomen? 

Throughout the years we seem to have had a series of objectives. Originally 
the Woman's Auxiliary, so the records tell us, was ''formed for the purpose of 
raising money, forwarding boxes and otherwise helping on the Mission of the 
Church". At that time women thought of the Mission of the Church almost 
exclusively in terms of overseas missionaries and the "end desired" was quite 
clear — to help them with money and material goods. Following the formation 
of the National Council in 1919 we became "Auxiliary to the National Council" 
and our objectives multiplied. The work of the Auxiliary was broken into 
department": corresponding to the departments of the National Council and most 
dioceses. Aiding the Mission of the Church came to mean in practice promoting 
the work and program of the various departments as outlined by the National 
Council and the National Executive Board of the women. Diocesan officers 
passed on a series of clear directives from national officers covering a wide area 
of activities, with emphasis on education. 

Today we are in a. third phase, which began formally in 1958. As Episcopal 
Churchwomen we say that we include all women communicants of the Church, 
we recognize that we are full members of the Body of Christ and not some- 
thing ''auxiliary". Our new handbook, Women in your parish, states that the 
purpose of our organization is to help each person "find her place in the perish 
family and in the Mission of the Church". But the concept of the "'mission of 
the Church" is changing and when we talk in terms of specific programs and 
expenditures of money we find that it means different things to different people. 
Certainly it no longer means exclusively overseas missions, as it did in the nine- 
teenth century. Our theme for this Triennium, "Even so send I you" underscores 
instead the concept of the "ministry of the laity" — that we are called by Our Lord 
not just to help missionaries but to BE missionaries in our families, our work, 
our communities. To awaken both men and women to their responsibilities in 
this regard, to train and equip them for the task of making a Christian witness 
is a major new emphasis. 

In addition the 1958 Triennial report, This is our Heritage, makes clear that 
the way in which we went about the mission of the Church in recent years by 
stressing a neat division of the work into separate departments is no longer 
adequate. The report says: "Who can say what the line is between missions and 
social relations, or the relationship between social relations and education? .... 
Emphasis is no longer placed on the work of the Church in its several parts, 
but on its total work, its Mission". The same discontent has already been ex- 
pressed independently in this diocese, by branches concerned with the blurring 
of departmental lines and overlapping of responsibilities or on the other hand 
complete disregard of what is going on in other departments. 

Finally while the General Division of Women's work is assuming real leader- 
ship in supplying new and constructive ideas as to our specific goals, they have 
made it clear that they no longer conceive it to be their function to send out 
mandatory instructions. Instead they are saying that they need our help in 
discovering needs, seeing opportunities and challenges, rethinking how our time 
talents and money may best be spent. The diocese also is asking us to share 



Episcopal Church women 13 



in their thinking about purpose and long-range plans. Both are reevaluating 
existing programs. So as your diocesan president I cannot pass on to you a 
simple series of one-two-three objectives, for we are in a transitional period 
in which the old patterns are being questioned and the new ones not yet formu- 
lated. 

Instead I would ask you to take a good look at our existing pattern of worship, 
study, work and stewardship as it exists in our branches today. We engage in 
a great variety of activities, from cooking suppers to retreats, from sewing to 
studying legislation. We assume that they are all furthering the mission of the 
Church and in some measure they may all actually be doing so. Can we sort 
them out and agree on which are the most important "objectives or ends desired"? 
The following questions may be some guides to our thinking. 

1. Change in name. Have we really given more than lip-service to becoming 
"Episcopal Churchwomen"? Are we considering the needs of all of the women, 
including those who are not now "active" in our work and are we helping them 
find their place in the parish and the mission of the Church? 

2. Maintenance versus mission. Originally the housekeeping and maintenance 
part of women's work was carried out by guilds, mission work by the Auxiliary. 
Today we strive and often achieve the goal f having only one organization in 
each parish which is concerned with both jobs. Both are obviously necessary 
in some degree. But have we given serious thought to planning the maintenance 
part of our work and keeping it within reasonable bounds so that it does not 
in fact take more than its rightful share of our time and energy? 

3. What does mission really mean? Are we prepared to study our theme 
"Even so send I you" in terms of our own responsibility to preach the Gospel 
by word and deed wherever we are? How can we best help the mission of the 
Church in our diocese and in the world? 

4. Means and methods. Do some activities contribute more than others and 
should we not frankly try to set some kind of priority? How can we eliminate 
what seems to be a kind of competition between the several departments of 
women's work or diocesan work? Can we even begin by facing the fact that is 
exists — that department chairman too often see their area as most important 
and try to get a larger and larger share of the time, talents and budget of the 
women at both branch and diocesan level without regard for any over-all view? 
In other words, without giving up the specialization which seems most necessary, 
can we ever achieve the kind of coordinated planning toward a unified purpose 
about which we talk so much and do so little? 

5. Money. Raising money is certainly still one of our objectives, but are we 
doing it in the most effective and efficient manner? Or the way best calculated 
to contribute toward growth in Christian stewardship and commitment? Have 
we ever thought through the relation of our budget to that of the parish and 
diocese? How can our money be most effective in helping overseas missions? 
And if an important part of our task is training and equiping the laity for their 
own missionary work, are we not justified in spending a reasonable amount on 
materials, experiences such as retreats and conferences which contribute to their 
understanding of this. 

These are all serious questions which cannot be answered in a moment. 
They will not be answered without a great deal of praying, thinking, experi- 
menting, discussing and sharing of experiences. But until there is some general 
agreement as to what the mission of the Church really is and how we can best 
contribute to it, it is impossible to formulate "objectives".

16 Eightieth Annual Report 



THE PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS 

CHANGING PATTERNS 

Bishop Baker, members of the clergy, delegates and friends — it is a joy and 
privilege to make this my first address to the Annual Meeting of the Episcopal 
Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Carolina, and to add my welcome to 
what we hope will be an informative and fruitful meeting. Since that moment 
last year in Charlotte when I received the cross, the symbol of office, I have 
had a rich, rewarding and extremely busy year. I shall not list in detail the 
many meetings it has been my privilege to attend, for it would take too long. 
Let me instead say thank you — thank you for asking me to speak at so many of 
your meetings — thank you for sending me to the Triennial in Detroit — thank you 
to the Bishops and the diocese for allowing me to be a part of so many com- 
mittees and planning sessions. I must also say thank you to the Executive 
Board, and especially to the outgoing officers whose devotion and patience and 
plain hard work have been an inspiration and a support. 

The true report of what you — the women of this diocese — have been doing in 
the past year and what is in store for you next year will follow shortly in the 
reports of the various chairmen. I shall not attempt to cover their fields now. 
Rather it is with the over-all view that I am concerned in this address. 

The theme of this meeting — Changing Patterns — was borrowed from the title 
of the Triennial Report of the General Division of Women's Work presented 
last fall in Detroit. At the fall District meetings we tried to report to you 
some of the changes at the national level — in missionary strategy, in structure, 
in personnel. The changes proposed in our diocese are known to you if you 
have read the last Churchman. I urge you to follow the coming Convention 
carefully, for several proposals, if adopted might ultimately affect the work of 
the women. Today and tomorrow you will hear of more changes and you will 
be asked to vote on certain ones in connection with our budget and constitution. 
The women of the Church have a solid heritage of accomplishment. Many do 
not see the need for change of any sort. But whether we like it or not, the 
world around us is changing so rapidly that it is difficult to keep abreast. Popu- 
lation shifts, social customs change; jobs, larger families, less domestic help 
change the daily lives of women. On the world scene as new nations rise and 
throw off colonialism, as world tension increases and whole nations are closed 
to Christian missionaries, mission strategy is being rethought and redirected on 
far different lines from that of the nineteenth century. To quote from the 
Triennial report, ''the greatest issue facing Churchwomen today is the lack of 
understanding among women that our lives are changing, and organized work 
must prepare itself to cope with these changes". 

Is it true then that we must overturn all the old familiar patterns? Clearly 
the answer is no, for some things do not change. One of them is our basic goal 
and purpose. Why do we have on organization called the Episcopal Church- 
women ? The new handbook — "Women in your parish" — states that our purpose 
is "to help every woman find her place in the parish family and in the Mission 
of the Church". The mission of the Church is defined quite simply — "The Church 
exists to carry the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the world. All other considerations, 
whether of means or of results are subordinate to this". We have no goal but 
the goal of the whole Church and there can be no question of changing it, for 
it stems from our Lord's own command to go into all the world and preach 
the gospel. But if the Gospel does not change, or the necessity of proclaiming 
it, the world does, as I have said. Our task then, becomes that of making the 
healing gospel of love and forgiveness relevant to the broken, confused, anxious, 



Episcopal Church women 17 



frustrated world around us. If women are to continue to play a leading role 
in the Church they must take a realistic look at the world and adapt their 
strategy to witnessing in ways that can be understood by the non-Christian 
world that stands in such terrible need of the Gospel. 

Let us look then at some of the ways by which we strive to further the work of 
the Church. First of all we must examine our own commitment and faith. To 
deepen the spiritual lives of the women, to enlarge their knowledge of God and 
love for their Lord Jesus Christ has always been a basic purpose of our coming 
together. No one blueprint for worship or study or action will insure that this 
will happen ; it is the work of the Holy Spirit and He moves in wondrous ways. 
Still the organized program of the Churchwomen can provide opportunities for 
spiritual development, for prayer and quiet reflection together, for study of the 
Bible and the Christian faith. Our structure and program can be a framework 
within which something can happen in the lives and hearts of participating 
women. 

Because we realize the importance of the spiritual life we are proposing one 
of the changes on which you will vote — the amendment making the Chairman 
of Worship an elective rather than an appointive officer entitled Secretary of 
Devotional Life. The change in the constitution is not as important as the 
emphasis which we hope to give to both private and corporate worship. We need 
sometimes to stop in our constant business, sort out our values, think and pray, 
so that when we return to our activities we can choose them wisely, put them 
in perspective and find them more meaningful. 

Finance. One of our chief ways of aiding the mission of the Church is through 
our gifts of money — our budget, special funds and offerings. I shall leave to 
the Treasurer the presentation of the budget for next year and the proposals 
for change which you have already received by mail. Instead I should like to 
make some comments on the over-all picture of our total giving. Figures may 
seem dull, but the current report is thrilling. Our budget as such for last year 
was $15,500, but the total disbursed by our Treasurer, including special funds 
and offerings, amounted to $49,475.38. If we add to this $25,466 from the United 
Thank Offering and $628.00 from the Church Periodical Club, the total -iving 
of the women of this diocese for work outside their own parishes and missions 
amounted to over $75,000. Only a little over $4,000 went for administration 
and since most of this was for the education and inspiration of the women of 
the diocese so that they might do their work better — Annual Meeting, Vade 
Mecum, the yearbook, and so on — I hardly think we are spending too much on 
ourselves. 

The total giving is not only impressive, it has increased in a most gratifying 
way. In the last ten years the budget has increased from $11,000 in 1951 to 
$15,500 in 1961, an increase of 25%. This is about the same as our increase in 
membership as you will see later, and like our membership the greatest increase 
took place in the middle fifties rather than in the last few years, when the 
budget has been relatively stationery. More striking is the fact that our 
"specials" — the amounts voted by branches for mission work which are not a 
part of our budget — have increased from $4,507 in 1950 to $19,560 in 1960, or 
more than 400%. In other words, giving has increased faster than membership 
and this is wonderful, but the fact that it has not gone into our budget might 
give us some cause for concern. 

As I study the list of specials in details, I am struck by the large number oi 
small gifts and their widespread incidence. I wonder at the wisdom of such 
a policy and whether such very small gifts really make a significant contribution 
to the spreading of the Gospel in the missions which receive them. Bishop 
Bayne calls this the "birdshot technique", whereby a very little bit of the 



18 Eightieth Annual Report 



Gospel is spread over a very wide area and no one gets enough to make any 
real impression. He counsels fewer, larger gifts based on carefully evaluated 
requests from missionary- bishops. Our Companion Diocese relationship was 
sponsored partly in line with this new emphasis in missionary- strategy — to con- 
centrate giving in one area on the most urgently needed projects backed by the 
Bishop and Council of the district. Our chief budget items are based on such 
requests — from Panama and elsewhere, including our own diocese. They have 
the approval of the Overseas Department and our own Bishops. By putting our 
$5 contributions together we can undertake significant projects — build a parish 
house in Brazil, new schools in Africa. We can support native seminaries, buy- 
jeeps, equip dormitories and make permanent and lasting contributions toward 
spreading the Gospel. The same is true inside the diocese — particularly in regard 
to the capital needs of missions. The budget this year is a challenge budget. 
Without asking any more of individuals, we can meet it if some branches will 
transfer to it some money which has gone into specials. Our budget is really a 
series of corporate missionary gifts. If we study it well with the explanations 
which accompany it, we can ail feel a sense of participation in it. Our two chal- 
lenge projects — one in Panama and one at Vade Mecum, we hope will be es- 
pecially near your hearts and we hope that you will add to them from the 
specials which remain. May I add that this is your budget — not ours, and we 
hope that you will feel free to question, criticize and change should you feel 
inclined. 

Membership. Next to our total giving, the number of active members is one 
guide to the interest and participation of women in the Mission of the Church. 
As I suggested earlier, over a ten year period we have grown from about 4,800 
to about 6,000 members, or a gain of 25%. But most of this gain again came 
during the middle fifties. In 1959 we passed the 6,000 mark and since then 
have fluctuated slightly above it, with the high in 1960. For 1962 the figures 
are not all in, but if the branches still to report show no loss, we may surpass 
the 1960 figures slightly with perhaps 6,250 members. Still when we consider 
the population increase, we are hardly doing more than holding our own. 
Your report blanks this year show that in almost every parish there are many 
women who show no interest or participation in the work of the Churchwomen. 
The figures on membership, branch by branch, are even more interesting. 
Fifteen branches showed a decrease totalling 96, 23 showed an increase totalling 
268. Plotted geographically these changes reflect the population shift within 
the diocese from rural to urban areas and also within cities from the "inner 
City" to the suburbs. Thus our membership shows a change which is going on 
in the secular world and which the Church must face — the change to a progres- 
sively urban economy with resulting serious problems in rural churches and also 
in the inner city. They do not show another trend which we also know to be 
taking place and presents an equally great challenge to the Church — the extreme 
mobility and rootlessness of the suburban population — the organization man 
and his family. 

Number of branches. The number of branches active in the diocese is difficult 
to count, for sometimes it is hard to say when a branch is "active". On the basis 
of Central Fund payments, however, we now count 105 branches, one more than 
in 1961. Two events should be specially noted. The women of Emmanual Church, 
Southern Pines, which formerly had two separate branches of the Churchwomen, 
have combined into one unified branch. This happy event we celebrate with a 
special joy, for it marks the end of a long campaign to have only one branch 
of the Churchwomen in each parish or mission. At about the same time the 
women of the Church of the Messiah, Mayodan, which had been inactive for 
several years, reorganized and became active again. This step seems to me as 



Episcopal Church women 19 



significant as the other and also a cause for special rejoicing. More attention 
I think should be paid to the problems of women in small missions. Last year 
the diocesan journal reported 130 parishes and mission in the diocese. This 
means that 25 missions now do not have an organized branch of the Episcopal 
Churchwomen, though some of these used to have one. Some are so small that 
it may not be wise or feasable for them to organize. Still I feel that for any 
group of churchwomen, however small, not to meet together except for Sunday 
service and to have no contact with the diocese or the world-wide church is a 
great loss for them and for us. Perhaps the chief reason for their inactivity and 
also for the frustrations and difficulties of small missions which do try to have 
an organization is the seemingly complicated program and structure which the 
diocese seems to offer, if not actually require of them. Your diocesan board 
and your president in particular are giving a great deal of thought to this problem. 
Using the very helpful new pamphlet from the General Division — Women in your 
parish — we are trying to find ways of helping them simplify and adapt our 
program to their needs, while maintaining a balance of interest. 

Flexibility is perhaps the key word here, and for this we are striving in many 
areas. The proposal recommended for studying legislation is a good example. 
We do not wish to drop any area of concern — certainly not legislation, but we 
do wish to make it possible for branches to have greater freedom and choice 
in studying legislative measures — local, state and national — in which they are 
truly interested and might be willing to take some action. The purpose is always 
to strengthen our work, not reduce it. 

Other proposals under study. More is in progress and under study that I can 
take time to explain — further revision of the constitution, possible changes in 
content and format of the yearbook to make it more useful, reevaluation of the 
function of the districts and redrawing of district boundaries. I might at least 
indicate the trend of thought, and the proposed revision of our officer structure 
into departments similar to those of the diocese best illustrates it. The plan 
would do two things — provide a pattern of simplified structure which small 
branches and perhaps districts could follow while ensuring that all aspects of 
the work is covered in some degree; and secondly encourage greater communica- 
tion and cooperation with agencies of the diocese. Changes in the districts are 
being considered with the same purpose in mind. I might add here that coter- 
minous boundaries for all diocesan organizations has been the subject of two 
recent resolutions of the Executive Council — an obviously logical move — though 
details are still to be worked out. Much more important is the need for inte- 
gration of the work of the women with that of the whole diocese and hence 
of the whole Church. Our Companion Diocese plan is a symptom of the new 
trend — a diocesan wide project involving everyone from Bishops to children in 
the Church school. We hope to be included in more conferences concerning 
long-range planning for the diocese and for eliminating competition for man 
and woman power. It is only as the laity, both men and women, understand 
and accept their role as ministers of Christ and missionaries on His behalf that 
the Church can move forward as she should. Not organization but mission is 
our goal. 

As I studied your report blanks I was struck by one recurring comment — poor 
attendance at meetings. Complaints and questions as to the remedy greet me 
at branch and district meetings. If it is any comfort, I can assure you that 
this is not a peculiar problem in the diocese of North Carolina. We must look 
for remedies, but first we must try to diagnose the disease. One reason for poor- 
attendance and also for the fact that we are not enrolling more communicant 
women as active members is very clear — the increasing number of women holding 
full or part-time jobs. Let me give you some figures from a nation-wide survey. 



20 Eightieth Annual Report 



In 1890 most women who worked were single and under twenty-five. Today 
twice as many work as then. Three-fourths of them are married and half are 
over forty. Even more striking is the fact that nearly two out of every five 
mothers whose children are of school age are in the labor force. This is a 
changing pattern that we cannot overlook, for these mothers of school age 
children and women over forty now holding jobs are the ones who used to do 
the volunteer work. All women's organizations are beginning to feel the 
pinch of fewer and fewer women available or interested. The remedy is not 
to campaign for them to resign their jobs and come to our meetings — for they 
are contributing much to society — as teachers, nurses, social workers, librarians, 
professional women of many kinds. Still they need the Christian faith and the 
sense of participating in its mission as much as the rest of us. They need to 
be helped to see how they can exercise their Christian ministry and make their 
own witness in the midst of very busy lives. This is one of the areas to which 
we must give the most serious thought. It is not enough to schedule night 
chapter meetings if the program and thinking is still geared to the old way of 
life. They are apt to be impatient of bazaars, though they might write a check. 
They will not take precious time from their families for haphazard meeting 
with no clearly defined purpose. If v/e are to enlist the interest of some of our 
most talented and energetic women, we must change our patterns before it is 
too late. 

But what of the women who do not work and still show little interest or 
attend with any regularity ? There are many useful suggestions of the same 
sort — better meetings, stimulating programs, efficiently organized business. De- 
sirable as they all are, I somehow feel that they do not go to the root of the 
problem. Many presidents tell me that they have tried their very best, with no 
results. I feel that the problem goes very deep indeed and should be the occasion 
for some individual and collective soul-searching. In the end it is a matter of 
commitment — of our own faith and concern for the spreading of the Gospel. 
God loved the world— the whole world — so that He sent His Son to redeem it 
and bring more abundant life. If we love Him and our neighbor truly, we will 
find seme way of helping spread His gospel that is alive and meaningful to the 
women of the Church. 

This brings us back to mission — the heart of the matter — the reason for our 
existence as a body. The theme for this Triennial is "As the Father hath sent 
me, even so send I you". Where are we sent? To the ends of the earth. To 
Alaska and Panama, to Haiti and Africa, to India and Korea. But we are also 
sent to Jerusalem — to our own towns in the diocese of North Carolina. The 
mission of the Church is all around us and we witness for our Lord or against 
Him even.* minute of our lives. Sometimes it is easier to think of the Mission 
of the Church as something "over there" — in a far away land, and neglect the 
harvest around us. It is easier in your town to raise money for Liberia than 
to help resolve the race problems at home? Are there more volunteers for sewing 
dresses for Korean children than for providing leadership to combat the rising 
tide of moral laxness and disillusion among our own teenagers? Please do not 
misunderstand. The world situation, the spread of communism, the threat of 
atomic war all provide an urgency to the overseas mission of the Church such 
as has never happened before, and our help is desperately needed. Yet we must 
realize the deep truth of the statement we hear so often — "The Mission of the 
Church is one and the Church IS Mission". We must fight on all fronts at 
once, or we shall lose the battle. 

Christianity is contagious and we can help spread the infection. There is no 
space on your report blanks for minutes spent in family prayer, for visits to 
the lonely old lady down the street. There is no Secretary of Christian Love 



Episcopal Church women 21 



or Committee on Healing Broken Relationships. Yet this, too, is the work of 
the women of the Church. Showing forth the love of God is our calling and it 
is to the familiar world around us that we are chiefly sent. Let me quote from 
the address of Dean Paul Moore to the Triennial Meeting: "I am sure that you 
are tired of being told that the women set the tone of the Church, that without 
you the Church could not continue. You might well reply that vestries and 
clergy stand in the way of your work. This may well be true in the area of 
plan and program and budget and communication. I ajn not sure, however, 
that the Kingdom, in the deepest sense of that word, ever spreads through plans 
and budgets. Rather these are the vehicles within which the love and power of 
the Kingdom sometimes articulates itself. But it is the faith and love and con- 
version of persons, and it is the impact of one person upon another with 
which the Person of the King establishes his Kingdom. And so it is each one 
of you who makes the difference and who can be the instrument of change so 
that the Church, at least within our society, will really mean what it says." 

The Episcopal Churchwomen is a framework — a pattern — within which some- 
thing can happen — and does. It is like an internal combustion engine and some- 
times we need to alter the design or pattern of the engine so that something 
will happen more consistently and with greater power. But it is what happens 
in the hearts and minds of women of this diocese that is my ultimate concern — 
and as I finish my first year in office I can report with confidence that there 
I find faith and love, courage and power.

22 Eightieth Annual Report 



MINUTES OF THE ANNUAL MEETING— 1962 

The Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Carolina held its

The Reverend Thomas R. Thrasher, Rector of the Chapel of the Cross, Chapel 
Hill, led the Noonday prayers. 

The President introduced the Right Reverend Thomas A. Fraser, Jr., Bishop 
Coadjutor of the Diocese of North Carolina, who spoke on the diocesan missions. 
He reported that the many population changes taking place in North Carolina 
now are greatly affecting the various missions in this Diocese. Some are even 
having to be closed for lack of support. The population shifts to such an extent 
that the missions can never be very stable. A shifting population also means 
that the missions can never be supported financially to the same extent as per- 
manent parishes. What these missions need most is financial support for their 
building programs. The Bishop also noted that there is a reduction of youth 



24 Eightieth Annual Report 



in the Diocese now. He stressed the mission of the church on the campuses 
and pointed out that we must work with all the students, not just the ones 
who are Episcopalians. 

The President announced that the Right Reverend Richard H. Baker would 
be Parliamentarian and Mrs. W. L. Draper, Timekeeper. 

The President then read a telegram from Miss Emma J. Hall expressing her 
regrets at not being able to attend the meeting because of sickness and also 
sending her prayers for the success of the meeting. 

Mrs. Godfrey next presented the general chairman of the meeting, Mrs. Louis 
A. Carr, who made announcements concerning luncheon, exhibits, and meeting 
places for various committees. 

The meeting recessed for lunch, to reconvene at 2:15. 

Following the singing of Hymn S19, Mrs. Godfrey introducted the Reverend 
Martin R. Tilson, Rector of St. John's Church, Charlotte, who is a member 
of the Board of the Episcopal Radio-TV Foundation. Mr. Tilson reported 
that even though TV is fifteen years old, the Episcopal Church still does not as 
yet have a sustaining program on TV as it does on radio. We must have a 
good program in order to have the free time from the station. "One Reach 
One", a series of thirteen films, will cost $400,000' to produce. It is possible to 
reach the masses through TV, and we must take a deep interest in this Founda- 
tion and its plans. 

Mr. Robert D. Noble, Assistant Superintendent, Thompson Orphanage, told 
the women about some of the Changing Patterns at Thompson Orphanage. 
More and more the children are coming from broken homes and are not whole 
or part orphans. These children never come from stable homes, therefore the 
Orphanage has to work with the families as a whole. The chief theme at the 
Orphanage now is rehabilitation. They get the children back to the family as 
soon as it is back together. The Orphanage is helping more younger children 
now, and by doing so is able to keep whole families together. It is very 
evident that there will always be a Thompson Orphanage, and it will always 
need our help. 

Miss Jessie Pickens, Chairman of the Credentials Committee, presented the 
following report: 

Number of branches entitled to vote 104 

Number of delegates entitled to vote 258

The Secretary read Sections 2-5 of the By-Laws pertaining to eligibility to 
vote at Annual Meeting. 

At this time Mrs. Allen A. Surratt, Christ Church, Albemarle, gave her report 



Episcopal Church wo men 25 



as Chairman of Missions. She announced that Almeria Gordon is now one of our 
diocesan affiliated missionaries. 

Then the Chairman of the Standing Committees gave their reports as follows: 
Director of Church Periodical Club — Mrs. Allen E. Gant, Church of the 

Holy Comforter, Burlington 
Chairman of Altar Work and Service of Exchange — Mrs. John W. Drake, 
St. Bartholomew's , Pittsboro 

Chairman of Legislative Committee — Mrs. Matt Wall, St. Mary's, 
High Point 
Mrs. Wall reviewed the work of the special committee for reappraisal of 
membership in the State Legislative Council. She moved that the following 
recommendation of that committee be approved: "That the Episcopal Church- 
women withdraw from the State Legislative Council and that we use an alterna- 
tive method to express our concern in Christian Social Legislation." The motion 
was seconded. Mrs. Henry C. Bourne asked for a written vote. It was pointed 
out that the other two dioceses in this State do not now belong to the State 
Legislative Council. It was announced later that the motion passed by a vote 
of 162 to 23. 

Miss Jessie Pickens, Treasurer, moved that the following recommendation of 
the Executive Board to the Annual Meeting be accepted: "That we share in the 
travel expenses of Mrs. S. W. Easty, member at large on the National Board 
of the Church Periodical Club, in attending board meetings by allocating $100 
in 1962 and 1963." The motion was seconded and passed. This money would 
come from the Triennial and Provincial Reserve Fund. 

The Treasurer then made the following recommendation to the Annual Meet- 
ing: "Your Executive Board would like to recommend that the offering this 
evening be given half to Almeria Gordon and half to Deaconess Edith A. Booth". 
Miss Pickens moved the adoption of this recommendation. It was seconded 
and passed. 

The Treasurer then explained the proposed allocation of the 1961 surplus as 
follows: 

1961 Surplus $291.65 

Outside Diocese — One half to Episcopal Radio-TV 

Program— ONE REACH ONE $145.83 

Inside Diocese — One half to Diocesan Fund to Train 

Women for Church Work $145.82 

She moved that the proposed allocation as recommended by the Executive 
Board to the Annual Meeting be accepted. The motion was seconded and passed. 
Miss Pickens read the recommendation of the Executive Board for the Inter- 
cessor Offerings: 

Feast of the Epiphany — January 6 — Jocelyn Gordon 

Ember Day — September 21 — Diocesan Fund to Train Women for Church 

Work 

She moved that the proposed allocation as recommended by the Executive 

Board to the Annual Meeting be accepted. The motion was seconded and passed. 

Miss Pickens then presented the proposed 1963 budget item by item. She 

explained in detail the reasons for the changes in the budget. Central Fund is 

no longer adequate. To simplify the handling of funds on the Diocesan and 

Branch levels, the budget is based on consolidating the funds formerly received 

from the Pledge (Ascending Scale), Central Fund, Supply, Thompson Orphanage 

Graduate Fund, Kanuga, and Vade Mecum into one unified budget. This budget 

can only be accomplished by all branches making a total pledge to cover the 

amount they are now paying into the accounts listed. Doing away with Central 

Fund as such raises questions concerning voting privileges at Annual Meeting. 



26 Eightieth Annual, Report 



Miss Pickens explained that the delegates for 1963 will be determined by the 
1962 pledge and that the Committee on the Constitution will continue to study 
the matter of representation at Annual Meeting. Following the discussion of 
the budget, Mrs. George Shepard moved that the principal of the overall budget 
be accepted. The motion was seconded, and there was some discussion concern- 
ing waiting until the following morning to vote on the budget. Mrs. W. H. R. 
Jackson pointed out that the vote should be taken immediately because if any 
items on the budget needed to be changed, the Finance Committee would have 
to do it that night. The President called for the vote, and the motion carried. 
Miss Pickens then moved that the section of the budget for disbursement outside 
the Diocese be adopted. The motion was seconded and passed. She then 
moved that the section of the budget for disbursement inside the Diocese be 
adopted. The motion was seconded and passed. She then moved that the 
proposed budget for administration be adopted. This motion was seconded and 
passed. Complete information concerning each item in the budget was included 
in the delegates' packets. Miss Pickens then made the motion that the entire 
budget as presented be adopted. The motion was seconded and passed. 

The President introduced the Reverend R. Martin Caldwell, Jr., Rector of 
Emmanuel Church, Southern Pines, who spoke to the group about the Terraces 
and the Committee on Retreats and Conferences. Mr. Caldwell reported that 
over 19,CCj people have stayed overnight at the Terraces since it opened last 
September. Over 7,000 meals have been served in that time. The Terraces is 
being used by people other than Episcopalians when it is not booked by them. 
Retreats have been scheduled for some time in November and February. Mr. 
Caldwell reported that thanks to the Churchwomen the Chapel at the Terraces 
is now finished. 

The President next introduced Mr. John L. MacDougall, Administrator of the 
Home for the Ageing. He reported that the contractors now have the plans for 
the Home. Bidding will be done this month, and construction will begin in 
June. They already have more applications for the home than they will be able 
to accommodate. The Home will cost 5350,000, and $334,000 has already been 
taken in subscription. Memorials may be taken in the rooms of the Home in 
the way of furniture and equipment. 

Mrs. Carr invited tho-e attending to a tea at the Duke Student Center and 
a tour of the Sarah P. Duke Gardens. The meeting recessed until 8:00 P. M. 

Evensong was hold at St. Philip's at 8:00 P. M., and the Reverend James 
W. Kennedy, Rector of the Church of the Ascension, New York, and Secretary 
of the Joint Commission on Ecumenical Relations, preached the evening sermon 
on the meeting of the World Council of Churches in New Dehli. 

On May 2nd the celebrant at the 7:30 A. M. service of Holy Communion 
was the Right Reverend Richard H. Baker. The United Thank Offering was 
presented and prayers were offered for those members of the Episcopal Church- 
women who had died since the last Annual Meeting. 

Following this sendee, breakfast was served in the Parish House. 

The Annual Meeting reconvened at 9:30 A. M. with the singing of Hymn 
577. The Reverend Albert A. Nelius, Curate of St. Philip's Church, opened 
the meeting with prayers. 

Mrs. Godfrey then introduced Mrs. Matt Wall, Chairman of the State Legis- 
lative Committee, who presented two recommendations from the Executive Board 
to the Annual Meeting. The first one dealt with the minimum requirements by 
state law concerning sanitary conditions in migrant labor camps. She moved 
that the new Legislative Committee of the Diocese study this proposed bill and 
if it seems desirable to them, send information for study and action to the 
Churchwomen. The motion was seconded and passed. The second item con- 



Episcopal Churchwomen 21 



cerned recommending to the same committee a bill for a commission to study 
all factors relating to the death penalty for possible recommendation to the 
Churchwomen. This motion was seconded and passed.

a motion was made that the Constitution Committee rewrite this section to

mittee agreed to delete the etc. though expressing the opinion that lattitude of 
action be left the Chairman. The motion was seconded and passed. During 
the discussion of Article VIII, Section 1, a suggestion was made that the nomi- 
nating committee be elected. The Parliamentarian pointed out that this was not 
usual. The article carried as originally written. 

The President next introduced Deaconess Edith A. Booth, Head of the Central 
House for Deaconesses, Evanston, Illinois, who spoke on the Order of Deaconesses. 
She first pointed out the differences between deaconesses and nuns and then 
gave a short history of the Order of Deaconesses. Then she told about the 
work the deaconesses do today and how a woman goes about becoming a Dea- 
coness. The life of a deaconess is one of direction and discipline. Even though 
all of us cannot be deaconesses, the power of God works through all of us in 
all we do. The Church is everyone of us.

it will be divided between Almeria Gordon and Deaconess Booth as voted on

legates in accordance with the newly passed constitution change. 

The Reverend L. Bartine Sherman showed a filmstrip on College Work in the 
Diocese. This filmstrip was prepared by the Reverend Roderick Reinecke of 
State College and presented the problems and plans of the various church related 
colleges in this Diocese. The President announced that this filmstrip is available 
to the branches for programs during the year. 

The President introduced Dean P. R. Robinson of St. Augustine's College 
who spoke to the group on the many changes going on on that campus. Enroll- 
ment is up and as a result of this more space is needed for dormitories and class- 
room buildings. St. Augustine's College now has full membership in the Southern 
Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. The Episcopal Churchwomen 
are very active on the campus. More and more students are coming to the college 
from foreign countries. The new Fine Arts Building will be completed in the 
fall. 

Dr. Mabel Morrison spoke on St. Mary's Junior College. She announced that 
the faculty there has made a self-study of the program at the college. The 
Southern Association of Junior Colleges has reviewed this study and has added 
some suggestions. Dr. Morrison pointed out that there are problems peculiar to 
the junior college, and she asked for our continued support of St. Mary's. 

Mrs. Wimbert Gardiner, Christ Church, Raleigh, spoke on the importance of 
the ministry to the ageing. She pointed out that loneliness and malnutrition 
are the biggest problems among the ageing. We must care enough to give of 
ourselves. If we do, we can meet their needs. 

Mrs. Herman Salinger, St. Stephen's, Durham, outlined the program for the

Mrs. Godfrey then expressed her own appreciation for all that the members 
of St. Philip's had done to make the 1962 meeting a success. She then presented 
Bishop Baker who installed the newly elected officers. 

When Bishop Baker congratulated Mrs. Godfrey on the success of the meeting, 
the entire assembly stood in silent tribute to her. In his address to the Annual 
Meeting Bishop Baker commended the Churchwomen on the depth of their 
discipleship. He said that their program was very wide and penetrating and 
that all the items in it were important. He called attention to the forthcoming 
Diocesan Convention mentioning especially the change of plans for the structure 
and organization of the Diocese. The Bishop then pronounced the benediction. 

Mrs. Godfrey expressed her gratitude to Bishop Baker and to all the clergy. 

Mrs. Louis A. Ca.rr made an annoncement concerning the luncheon in the 
Parish House.

48 Eightieth Annual Report 



WORSHIP 

In a February issue of Time Magazine, Lutheran theologian Dr. Loren Hal- 
vorson articulated an awareness "that from the center of the church is com- 
ing a rising crescendo of questions regarding the vast amount of seemingly aim- 
less activity pemeating the life of the church — innumerable meetings, immersion 
in churchiness — the not-a-minute-to-spare crowding of the temple calendar — 
and the pursuit of statiscal success that has left many of its members exhausted 
both in body and spirit." 

In March, in a sermon broadcast over the radio, Dr. Albert Mollegen of the 
Virginia Theological Seminary stated in combating communism, "We must re- 
Christianize the western civilization as well as missionize the non-Christian 
world.'" In elaborating on this point Dr. Mollengen adds, ' ; if the church means 
just those affiliated with it, then the Christianization of the institutions of the 
church is part of our task. A good many church members have only a vague 
idea of what Christianity is." 

Last week lecturing at tht University of Chicago Dr. Karl Barth, one of the 
most influential theologians of the century, said, "The theme of the church 
must not be man's religion, man's morals, man's feelings, but God's encounter 
with man. Knowledge of God is knowledge through Jesus Christ." 

Can we hear what these cadres of Christianity are saying to us in this 
changing world? Or do we have ears and hear not? 

Do we hear rebellion against the crippling activism of our churches excessive 
busyness that is producing the "organization church" — one engaged in a wide 
range of useful but peripheral activities not necessarily involved in the true 
mission of the church. 

Do we hear — the necessity for church members in a society struggling to 
preserve freedom — the necessity for church members to have an understanding 
of Christianity that will inform, enlighten and empower our total lives in order 
that we may respond to this by — not counting the cost — but by offering our 
lives to God for His use in reconciling this strife-torn world to him. 

And finally do we hear — the theme of all we say and do as the church must 
be the good news — God's loving us enough to come to us in a personal way, 
in the person of Jesus Christ so that as we in faith- — responding to and know- 
ing personally Jesus Christ are drawn into a relationship with God which 
transforms and gives new dimensions to our lives. 

Rebellion against the activism that pervading the church obscures the church's 
true mission— Necessity for a clear and relevant understanding of Christianity — 
Turning from religiosity and moralism to God's encounter with man. 

What does this say specifically to us as children of God — as Episcopal Church 
women? 

Perhaps the simplest way to answer this would be to drop in on three of 
our friends who have just returned from the monthly meeting of the church 
women. 

They are rehashing the meeting and making plans for next year's "church 
work". 

The conversation goes something like this: First voice belongs to Helen Brown 
whose seventeen year old daughter was crippled by polio three years ago. 

Sue asked me to serve on the visiting committee and I told her I had no 
intention of visiting anyone — my child has been confined to this house for 
nearly three years and its been over two years since anyone from the church 
has been here, except the rector of course. They're all so busy rushing to get 
to the newcomers they don't seem to have time for the sick and shut-ins. 

You know I feel completely drained from this perpetual rush we stay in — 



Episcopal Churchwomen 49 



teas for the newcomers — bazaars, bridge tournaments decorating the parlour — 
and of course our slogan is "everytime we meet — we eat" — so we're forever 
in the kitchen — I really can't see much difference in what we do in church work 
and in the women's civic and service club's work. Yes, we do good works — and 
church work — yes — but is this what is really meant by the work of the church? 

Second voice belongs to energetic and most talented Jane Smith: 

"I know both of you will laugh — knowing me the way you do — when I tell you 
that I have been asked to be Worship Chairman ! Certainly I know I'm not 
good or worthy enough to do it. They should ask someone more specially 
qualified — that knows about prayer and all — you know, like the rector's wife. 
It's just not my cup of tea. I'm one of the "action gals" — this sitting around 
in groups praying or talking about the Bible is not for me. There's so much 
important and exciting work to be done ! It's not that I'm against worship — 
I just think there's a time and place for everything — We open our meetings 
with prayer and I pray in the services of the church and that takes care of it 
for me. 

Perhaps I shouldn't say this but its almost more than I can stand when that 
pious-voiced Lucy Jackson opens every meeting with the same Holy-holy-holy. 
Why do we always have to use the same prayers? Furthermore, how she can 
stand up before that crowd and pray for the work of the church when she 
didn't come near the kitchen to help with the lunches during Lent — used her 
husband's 86-year old aunt's broken hip as an excuse — said she just couldn't 
leave her with a strange maid — seems to me her church works is certainly more 
important. 

No, I can't possibly be Worship Chairman. I've got to work where I can see 
tangible results and success." 

The Third Voice belongs to Anne Scott, who looks quite troubled and yet 
determined as she joins in the discussion: 

"Before I tell you what I was asked to do, there are three things I am com- 
pelled to say to you, Jane, about being Worship Chairman. You may remember 
I was District Worship Chairman two years ago. 

You spoke of feeling unworthy — well, you are unworthy — all of us are un- 
worthy — that is part of our humanity and there's no need to be imbarrassed by 
it — We must not let our feelings of unworthiness cause us to bury our talents and 
block the love and power of God from our lives. We all have our hollow-spots 
and feet of clay. 

"If I may be personal — As district worship Chairman I was often called to 
go to meetings of church women to talk on worship or give meditations. For 
days before these meetings I would be so absorbed in preparing my talk, getting 
my clothes assembled, having my hair fixed — now that was a must — I had no 
time for my family. I neglected housekeeping, was lax in preparing my meals. 
I simply turned into the "monster mother", and the "witch wife", impatient 
with the children, irritable and rude to my husband. 

Yet when I arrived at the meeting I could be pleasant — all smiles— inspiring 
and lovely, so they say. Hollow spots — clay feet — yet for what did my life 
say to my family about the love of God — and we do begin our witness to what 
we know of God in our homes ! ! But we must not stop here because we do 
know that as we respond to God's love in our daily private prayers or weekly 
corporate worship, we begin to see ourselves as we are. We can find in and 
through worship God's love, forgiveness, and acceptance of us which overcomes 
our fears, heals our brokenness, and sends us on our ever-stumbling and imperfect 
way to do His will. 

As Dr. Ferris says in his book The New Life, "Jesus Christ can use you now 



50 Eightieth Anwual Report 



as you are and as he uses you, he will make you more and more the person 
He want you to be." 

The voice of the third church woman continues: 

"I have felt the power and the redeeming love of God so strongly in my life 
and work this past year, I feel compelled to offer myself to be used in any area 
of the work so I can communicate this experience to others. 

Perhaps as children of God and Episcopal church women we need to "Ponder 
anew what the Almighty can do" and let our prayer be that of the Psalmists. 

"Lord Show me Thy way" 
"Make me to Go" 



Lucile A. McKee 

Mrs. James McKee, Jr. 

Chairman of Worship 



CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

"The purpose of Christian Education is to help each person to see, under- 
stand and respond to God's action in his life and in the lives of others through 
the power of Jesus Christ." 

"The purpose of Christian Education, indeed, the whole Church, is to pro- 
claim that the Triune God (Father, Son and Holy Ghost) has acted, is acting, 
and will continue to act and to elicit response to that action." 

These are quotations from the National Council, Department of Christian 
Education and merit reading and re-reading. 

What is our responsibility as concerned Churchwomen, and as Education 
Chairmen? We must use even- Channel available to us to further education 
among our fellowmen. 

These channels are the excellent materials that have been published from the 
General Convention in Detroit — Even So, Send i You, Women in our Parish, 
Women's Role in Today's World, and others available for 25c from the Nation- 
al Council. 

Other channels are the various Departments of the National Council and 
our Diocesan Departments. They are always willing to give us information if 
we will only take time to write. The Adult Division of the Department of 
Christian Education of the National Council is supplying us with the material 
for the 1962-63 Mission theme — The Rim of East Asia, and the Home Theme — 
The Church's Mission and Persons of Special Need. The latter theme is also 
being emphasized by the Department of Christian Social Relations and together 
we hope to make this theme a real challenge to the branches. Full information 
will be available in the May-June issue of CHURCHWAYS, and the Clergy 
Packet, Let's Respond to Our Calling. 

Our Diocesan Department of Christian Education has been and will be most 
helpful in planning Leadership Sessions and Parish Study Groups. They also 
have available speakers and teams who will come to your Parish for a special 
program. 

Our Bishops and Clergy are always vital channels of information that we 
must use. They are most interested in our plans and ideas, and will be helpful 
in carrying them out. So often the women can show a concern that will 
stimulate a Parish study or program. 

The Report Blanks were most helpful. They showed that individual needs of 
each parish have been considered. I feel that contact between the District and 



' Episcopal ChurchwomIn 5 1 



Diocesan Officers has improved. The Reports still shows a lack of communica- 
tion. "What must we do — what can we do?" To me there's only one answer and 
that it, "to care!" If you, as Chairman, as Churchwomen will care enough to 
see that all communications you receive are shared with all other officers, 
then we will all "be in the know." Time and money does not permit one 
officer to send each communication to all other officers, but each one of us has 
time to share with one another. "One Reach One" is the title of the T.V. 
series of the Episcopal Radio and T.V. Foundation that is in the making. "One 
Reach One" must be our slogan for overcoming this communication problem. 

A Bibliography is listed that will give you the most frequent sources of in- 
formation. Use this and obtain other information from your District and Dio- 
cesan Chairman. 

I cannot stress enough the importance of program planning committees in- 
cluding your Clergy, President, Chairman of Devotional Life, Secretary of 
Christian Social Relations, and the Secretary of Christian Education. Other Sec- 
retaries with a vital area of concern should have an opportunity to have their 
suggestions recognized. It is gatifying to note how many women are on the 
Parish Education Planning Committees. Total Parish Planning of Education 
is a goal we all strive for. 

Jesus offers the same channels to each of us today that he offered the dis- 
ciples. "As the Father has sent me, Even so send I you." He accepted the 
disciples despite their weakness, despire and sins — He accepts you and me as 
we are, whenever we turn faithfully to him and He will send us on His work, 
"Even as the Father sent Him."

CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 

Our responsibility in the area of Christian Social Relations is a continuing 
process requiring continual attention to issues and needs. Essentially related to 
this aspect of the task is the securing and use of basic resources. The Christian 
Social Relations' Secretary must avail herself of the resources and experiences 
which will not only help her to understand how she can work more effectively 
but also how she may enlist 'fellow members- 'in chosen endeavors. 



52 Eightieth Annual Report 



The program of our Church's CSR Department has grown very complex. The 
opportunities for service which it outlines, and for which it provides study ma- 
terials and action suggestions, are great in number. Study is vital to an un- 
derstanding of the job, insight into its possibilities, and choice of a workable 
program. 

"Interests of CSR permeated General Convention. This concern showed itself 
in forty-five resolutions and statements adopted by Convention and Triennial." 
These actions have been brought together in the 1961 edition of THE CHURCH 
SPEAKS. Many of them will be subjects for study and action during the 
new Triennium, with challenges and responsibilities of which we are already 
involved. The job can look very big and contemplation of it can leave us not 
knowing quite where to begin. Study of this pamphlet (25c from NC) might 
well be a beginning. 

CSR Monthly Bulletin describes activity of the several Divisions of the De- 
partment and keeps us informed about new developments and projects within 
each. Subscription ($2.00 annually from NC) includes Bulk Mailing of selected 
publications dealing with current issues and emphases. In addition, many ap- 
proved materials on special subjects are listed and reviewed, with source and

Churchways is very important to the CSR Secretary. Every issue includes 
something of interest to her and some issues contain a great deal. A regular 
feature is the calendar from which you will note dates for special CSR em- 
phasis and planning. New materials are listed promptly and categorically. 

You will have already noted our new social studv and action emphasis — 
THE CHURCH'S MISSION & PERSONS OF SPECIAL NEED. Since this 
is also the Home Missions theme we shall have no difficulty making sure, this 
year, that channels for joint planning are effectively used. Cooperative Planning 
with Secretaries of Christian Education for special promotion of this study can 
result in programs of real significance. Our National CSR Department can 
supply much material on numerous aspects of this theme. New materials pre- 
pared especially for developing it include: 

WHO CARES— A Project-Guide Book on The Church's Mission and Persons 
of Special Need. $1.75 from Friendship Press. 

MINISTRIES OF MERCY— $1.75 from Friendship Press. 

CONCERN & RESPONSE— The report of the Second National Conference 
on the Churches and Social Welfare. $3.50 from Friendship Press.

SUPPLY 



In keeping with the theme of this meeting — Changing Patterns — the Supply 
Department is continuing to change — on the National as well as the Diocesan 
and Parish level. Supply work, the "oldest organized project" of the women of 



Episcopal Church women 53 



the church has constantly changed in response to a rapidly changing world. 
But from its beginning on through various world wars — both hot and cold — it 
has been true to its original purpose, which is to supply the kind of material 
goods which are a woman's concern and responsibility for her own family. 

You people know that St. Agnes Hospital in Raleigh has closed and that 
Good Samaritan in Charlotte is no longer an Episcopal institution. Hence we 
do little or no sewing for institutions within the diocese. Many missions outside 
the diocese can buy as cheaply as we can buy and mail supplies to them. They 
prefer cash to our missionary Supply boxes. However on the Indian reserva- 
tions where the church has missions and in certain overseas fields supplies of 
clothing are still needed. The district of Mecklenburg accepted and completed 
the sewing assignment from National for the Indians of the Pine Ridge Mission 
in the Corn Creek District of S. Dakota. From all the districts in this diocese 
has gone good used clothing for these Indians. They will be one of our projects 
for 1962. 

We here in the Fourth Province have a major concern with the 50,000 Cuban 
refugees now in Florida — mostly in the Miami and Tampa area — who need re- 
lief and resettlement help. In October as your Supply Secretary I attended the 
Provinvial conference in Atlanta which devoted its attention to this Cuban 
refugee situation. It is hoped that many parishes in this diocese will help 
resettle Cuban families. Those churches which cannot be active physically in 
the resettlement program are urged to send gifts designated Cuban Relief to the 
Presiding Bishop's Fund for World Relief. 

At the request of our National Supply Secretary we will continue to pro- 
mote our Church's part in the United Clothing Appeal which includes sew- 
ing through Church World Service as well as the collecting of good used cloth- 
ing to be sent overseas through this agency. 

In spite of the changes taking place in this department the objectives re- 
main very much the same — at least for 1962. Again we will sew for the S. 
Dakota Indians and for Church World Service. We will continue to furnish 
new and used clothing to Thompson Orphanage and to send good used cloth- 
ing to Tuttle Community Center in Raleigh and to Church Wbrld Service Cen- 
ter. The unused clothing in our closets can do much to alleviate the nakedness 
and suffering of the needy and displaced persons of the world. As long as 
the need exists I am sure the various parishes of this the Diocese of N. C. will 
respond to our Lord's command to be sent into the world. The Supply De- 
partment is a part of Christ's Mission and Ministry.

THE UNITED THANK OFFERING, 1961 

During the Triennial Ingathering of the United Thank Offering in Detroit in 
September, 1061, a certificate for $81,539.45 was presented in behalf of the 
Churchwomen of this Diocese, representing their offering during the period 
September 1958-September 1961. Of this amount, $74,052.05 was our actual of- 
fering and $7,541.40 was interest earned. During the same period we re- 
ceived from the United Thank Offering $10,000 for the Student Center at Duke 
University and over $6,000 for repairs to the electrical and water heating sys- 
tems at St. Augustine's College, Raleigh. 

During the calendar year 1961, the United Thank Offering from this Diocese 
amounted to $25,466.16 and we received $150,000 for the Health and Fine Arts 
Building at St. Augustine's and a further $7,600 for equipment. 

To be the recipients of a missionary offering is a new experience to most of 
us in this well-endowed part of the world. It emphasises our responsibility to 
ensure that every woman in" the Church in the Diocese of North Carolina knows 
about the United Thank Offering, is given a Blue Box and is invited to join in 
this day by day offering of "prayers and gifts and joyful service." 

Materials for branch programs are available for the Diocesan and District 
Custodians, as are the slides "Joyous Thanksgiving," and the Diocesan Alms 
Basin may be obtained from the Diocesan Custodian by any branch for its In- 
gathering. 

The true joy of this United Thank Offering lies in the enrichment of our 'own 
lives as we daily, in a practical way, express our thanks for all God's "goodness 
and loving kindness to us and to all men." 

Margaret K. Motsinger, (Mrs. M. E., Jr.) 
Custodian of the United Thank Offering 



COLLEGE WORK 

Exactly how far away from you is the Church's closest Mission Field.?; You 
don't know? It's as close as the nearest college campus. If you have, never 
thought of the college campus as a mission field, ask yourself where *you would 
start if you were responsible for trying to do something about the : kind .of 
country and world we will have 20 years .from now. The ; struggle . for the 
attention and commitment of young minds and spirits -is .entered into;.. with 
gusto by many credos, ideologies ?, . and philosophies, in many, .different ..shapes

and forms. The college campus Is a' crucial place and these are crucial times. 
It is a place where the light of Christian truth must shine forth, and an area 
in which we must accept our responsibilities. 

There are a few specific suggestions as to what your parish can do. The 
sending parish (a parish which has young people leaving for college) can do 
.the following things: 

1. Accept the responsibility for getting the names of all young people going 
away to college in the Fall and for preparing the "Letters or Cards of Com- 
mendation" for distribution to the students, or better sending them directly to 
the chaplain or parish priest in the academic community. 

2. Write personal letters to the students who are away and send them parish 
mailings and devotional materials (Forward Movement, etc.). 

3. Plan a corporate communion breakfast before they go away in the Fall 
and when they return for the Christmas holidays. 

4. Remember the students, teachers, college workers and chaplains of your 
diocese in the prayers at meetings of the Churchwomen. 

5. Plan "So You're Going to College" sessions for high school students. 

6. Contribute to the "Discretionary Fund" or meet other needs of the chap- 
lain at the schools within the diocese. 

7. Support the Church Society for College Work in its national pioneering 
college work program. (All Secretaries of Personnel & College Work should sub- 
scribe to the Church Review, published by the Church Society for College 
Work, Mt. St. Alban, Washington, D. C. $1.00 per year.) 

8. Keep the Church's mission to the campus constantly before the Church- 
women, particularly the opportunities within the Diocese. 

9. Budget scholarships for local students to attend camps, conferences and 
summer work projects. 

10. Finally — welcome them back into full parish life upon graduation, if they 
return to the community. 

The receiving parish (one in an academic community) assumes all of the same 
responsibilities as does a sending parish, but has others in addition. The National 
Commission on College Work has stated, "The need of our time is to strengthen 
cur college ministry by involving the whole parish in the task of communicating 
the Christian Gospel to the college community." This parish must ask itself 
"What happens to college students and faculty when they encounter the common 
life of our parish? Does the total parish fellowship reach out and accept students 
and faculty as brothers-in-Christ?" Here again are some suggestions. 
1. Welcome students and faculty in the parish fellowship by inviting them to 
share in services of worship, social functions, altar guild work, choir, church 
school, etc. In some parishes there is a student representative on the Church- 
women's Council. In brief, you make it clear that this is their parish family 
and that they should participate here as they would at home. 

2. Invite students into your home not only for a meal but to share in your 
family life for a, few hours. 

3. Assist the Cantebury group in every way you can. 

4. Assist in providing funds for vocational and other conferences, books, special 
programs and chaplains discretionary fund. 

5. To sum up: work with the parish priest or woman worker in your common 
ta.sk of receiving and incorporating students into the parish family.

"...BUT THE LABORERS ARE FEW." 
(PERSONNEL) 

"Vocation is not what you do for a living but what God wants you to do with 
your life." Our lives and our abilities are God-given. What we do with them 
is our response to God's love and His gifts. Every Christian should make his 
vocation Christian, this we know. But we who are Churchmen have an obli- 
gation beyond this. It is to make known to our young people, and to consider 
ourselves, vocations within the Church. The future of the Church is at stake 
in a very real way. There are more calls than there are men and women who 
answer these calls. It is the voice of Christ Himself which is not being heard. 
Where is the trouble? Part of the difficulty is that we do not even mention, 
let alone encourage, our young people to consider the Church when they are 
looking for their life's work (particularly our own sons and daughters). And 
part lies in the fact that we do not know what the Church has to offer. What 
are some of the Church's needs and where are the calls? 

First of all, of course, there is the priesthood. There is no higher calling, yet 
today many pulpits are empty. None can say what will be the result if we 
do not answer the calls which come from under-developed countries and from 
the dark-skinned peoples of the world. Our survival may depend on the answer 
we give. In addition our colleges, medical centers, schools and prisons need 
chaplains. This too is missionary work. 

Doctors, nurses, and medical technicians are in demand in almost all of our 
mission areas. (What has become of the medical missionary? There are good 
scholarships in this field which are unused.) Recently, continued operation of 
a Church owned hospital in Central America depended on obtaining 4 qualified 
nurses to serve there. 

The field of social work is a challenging, demanding, difficult and yet reward- 
ing area of work. Our Episcopal Church Annual lists 14 pages of Church owned 
or related social service agencies. The diocese of North Carolina has at this 
time one young woman in training at Windham House. When she finishes her 
two year course of study, she will do psychiatric social work. Some of the 
types of work available in this field are: settlement houses, children's homes, 
hospital social work, institutions for the mentally ill, group work in cities with 
underprivileged children and delinquents etc. 

Teaching may well come next to preaching! Aside from prepatory schools 
and colleges at home and overseas (open to both men and women), there are 
jobs for women as Directors of Christian Education and as college workers. 
And vocational guidance has become a field in itself. The number of Church 
owned day schools is increasing. Certainly one cannot underestimate the im- 
portance of Christ-centered education. 

In addition to careers of this type, there are three other very important areas 
of service. They are: (1) Religious orders. There are 14 religious orders for 
women and 8 for men in the Episcopal Church. Each order has its own convent 
or monastery, rules and training. They own and operate retreat houses, schools, 
hospitals, homes for the aged and for children, both at home and abroad. They 
also work in parishes, conduct missions, retreats, schools of prayer, help at 
conferences, etc. (2) The Order of Deaconess. The training house for deacon- 
esses is in Evanston, 111. Two years training is required, women must be single 
or widowed. The office canonically established by the laying on of hands by 
a Bishop. Deaconesses assist in parish, mission and institutional work or work 
directly under a Bishop. (3) The Church Army. These "soldiers of Christ" 
are dedicated evangelists. They too have th«ir training house with two year 
program. They do a great deal of work in slum areas in urban centers, in 



Episcopal Church wo men 57 



both U. S. and foreign mission fields, in institutions, as well as assisting in all 
pha=«s of parochial ministry. 

OTHER TRAINING CENTERS 

There are eleven Episcopal seminaries in the United States, and two training 
houses for Women, St. Margaret's House in Berkley, California and Windham 
House in New York City. There is, in addition, an Apprenticeship Training 
Program in which a young woman may work for one year in her chosen field 
before entering one of the two aforementioned houses. National Council's 
Department of Christian Education conducts a 3 month program each summer, 
to train men and women to assist the clergy in administering a parishwide pro- 
gram of Christian Education. 

So many new fields have opened up in comparatively recent years that we 
cannot discuss them all. A list of just a few will have to suffice. There is work 
in: 

Religious art 

Film strips, motion pictures and TV programs produced by the Church 

Denominational publishing houses and church magazines 

Religious editor for commercial newspapers and book publishers 

Y. M. and Y. W. C. A. 

Statistical research work for National Church offices and agencies 

Relief work with National Church agencies 
Our obligation is three-fold. Our young people must be brought up in the 
Christian tradition, with personal convictions which will be relevant to the 
world in which we live, yet which will withstand the materialistic pressures of 
that world. We must see that they, as well as older persons within the Church, 
know of some of the needs and challenges within the Church. And we must 
pray that there will be many who answer Christ's call.

Secretary of Personnel and College Work 



REPORT OF THE CHAIRMAN OF MISSIONS TO THE 

ANNUAL MEETING 

ST. PHILIP'S CHURCH, DURHAM, MAY 1, 1962 

The Very Rev. Paul Moore told our delegates to the Triennial Meeting in 
Detroit that the mission of the Church to the World is to bear Christ's truth 
and to mean what she says in action and in power." Meaning what we say 
involves bearing the Cross. The Rev. Canon Max Warren suggests five ways 
in which missionaries discover just how heavy the Cross can be: 

First, is the recognition that we are called to the activity of understanding. 
This involves a knowledge of the language of those to whom we go. The bearers 
of the Word of God must everywhere be students and users of the words of 
men. For the Rev. Hall Partrick this has meant learning French and now 
Spanish. For Jocelyn Gordon it has meant learning Indian dialects, for Rachel 
Wolff the same. For the Rev. James Fortune it has meant learning the sign 
language of the Deaf. 

The Second implication is service. The world needs from us today, above 
all else, a manifold and imaginative compassion if its ears are to be attuned to 
the Gospel. This means for Bishop Gordon, the Rev. Messrs. Hodgkins, Grum- 
bine and Boesser and for Mrs. Chapman the ministry in Indian villages, Eskimo 



58 Eightieth Annual- Report 



villages, town missions and metropolitan parishes. It means service to the Sour- 
dough, the Serviceman, the Transient, the Dreamer, the Lost and the University 
student. The work often appears rather glamorous in print, but it means miles 
of walking, services in dirty log cabins to people who hardly know the name 
of Christ, the clash of several conflicting cultures. 

The third implication is' the' acceptance of the fact that there is a great 
act of retrieval to be accomplished. In the minds of many to whom we go, the 
Gospel is compromised by a melancholy history of political aggression in which 
all too frequently those who came with the Good News appeared to be the 
agents of those who came to exploit and conquer. Christianity aims not to have 
the map more Christian but Christ more widely known. It has been required of 
Bishop Harris, of Rachel Wolff and Jocelyn Gordon and now of Almeria Gordon 
to take an imaginative leap out of our own spiritual and cultural environment 
to try to put themselves in the place of Asians and Africans. This is a necessary 
step to restoring our character. 

The fourth implication is the summons to interpretation, in person-to-person 
relationships or in a hospitable Christian community. Such a community is 
All Saints Convent, from which Sister Adelaide writes that so many are finding 
there way here for help with problems or to get a little respite from the 
pressures of modern living. Such a community also is St. Andrew's School, 
from which Mrs. Simmonds writes of our currently favorite pupil, "Jonathan 
Stratman is fine and happy and off on a track trip. He plugs along at the mile 
but some day will be faster than now and does all right for an eighth grader." 
The Prior has written, "I am happy to let you know that we have gone over 
the top with Johathan's scholarship. We appreciate your wonderful assistance." 

The fifth is Patience — that quality in the missionary which knows that the 
mission is not constituted in its success, nor in any way invalidated by what 
the world may judge as numerical failure. But our commission is to proclaim. 
And proclamation takes many forms and often a very long time. With grateful 
hearts we salute those who have proclaimed both near — by and afar and are 
Churchwomen at home with us again: Miss Bettie Gordon, Miss Lillie Hill, 
Mrs. Kroll, Miss Mary Ramsaur, Miss Constance Young and she who has been 
long in hospital, Mrs. Tucker. We salute also Amory Merritt King, whose job 
changed from a professional one to non-professional in October when she became 
the wife of the Rev. Kale King, a priest in the Missionary District of Idaho. 

The climax of this report is the announcement that Almeria Gordon is now 
one of our diocesan affiliated missionaries. This particular Gordon whose call 
has always been to an overseas mission field has sailed for Singapore to teach 
Bible in a Mar Thoma Mission School. Our National Church gives assistance 
to the Mar Thoma Church in India in evidence of our interest in and concern 
for the Christian cause in that sister Church. What a wonderful thing to 
happen for us in this year of ecumenical emphasis. 

Many branch Annual Reports have, as always, come back with disappointing 
blank spaces. On the other hand, many of them have demonstrated the lively 
presence of the five attributes of the good missionary. One branch Missions 
Chairman concluding her term reported, "What a wonderful, rewarding and 
glorious experience it has been!" Another, concluding her term, wrote, "This 
Missions' Chairman feels that she has received an education in Missions herself!" 

They speak for me. Bless you all. 

Respectfully submitted,

REPORT OF REPRESENTATIVE 
TO THE STATE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL 

As Chairman of the representatives of the Episcopal Churchwomen to the 
State Legislative Council I served as Chairman of the special committee which 
appraised the value of our membership in the Council. Through the President's 
letter I mailed copies of the recommendation of this committee to all Branches 
and spoke on the subject in three Branches. 

The recommendation and the action relating to it are printed in this Hand- 
book in the minutes of the Annual Meeting. 



Episcopal Churchwomen 6*3 



I attended all meetings of the State Legislative Council and have reported to the 
Council that the Episcopal Churchwomen voted to withdraw their membership.

State Legislative Council 



CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

REPORT TO ANNUAL MEETING— MAY 1, 1962 

With pride and joy as your Director of the Church Periodical Club, I com- 
mend each of you for the fine work done in 1961. The women of the Diocese 
of North Carolina shared with their friends, and neighbors, near and far, some 
14,000 magazines, sent 23 more subscriptions to missionaries abroad, remailed IS 
each month, and sent more than 1000 Hymnals, Prayer Books, and countless 
more pieces of Church School material to others needing them. 

Our books fund sent to the National Office amounted to $628.68, a good in- 
crease over last year. This is just fine. 

1962 promises to be a fine year, and in great faith that the Churchwomen of 
our Diocese want to do more and better work, I have accepted in your name 
a project in the Diocese of Panama, since we are in companion diocese with 
the diocese of Panama. Our project is to be textbooks for Christ Church Acad- 
emy, Colon, Panama. The school takes care of some 250 children from kinder- 
garten through grade 10, and the need for textbooks is desperate. Bishop Gooden 
has cleared this project with our National Office, and it will amount to between 
$500.00 and $700.00 for this year. 

Early in the year small coin folders were sent to each branch, and I am happy 
to report that the women have graciously accepted these, and some have al- 
ready been filled and the money sent to me for this special project. This is 
very heartening, and it means that when the next school term starts the much 
needed textbooks will be on the desks on opening day of school. 

Each year the Church Periodical Club, through the National Books Fund, 
follows the Missionaries, the Church workers, and the Ministers of our Church 
on their missions throughout the world; supplying those necessary and extra 
tools that make the work more meaningful, and easier. Also each year as the 
U.T.O. builds a hospital, a school, or a Church on its ministry around the 
world, the Church Periodical Club follows with the books and periodicals nec- 
essary for operations of the libraries, for each of these institutions. Duing 1962 
we are asked to help in the new Bishop Tucker Seminary, West Africa; Liberia, 
Alaska, Central America, Japan, Mexico and The Rev. Hall Partrick, Okinawa, the 
Philippines, and many Indian Schools and Missions in the United States, and to 
the Armed Forces Chapels throughout the world. 

If you are a newly appointed secretary of the Church Periodical Club, con- 
gratulations! You are about to embark on what can be a vey rewarding Chris- 
tian experience. 

As you go about your task of seeing that the "Shut-ins," the "alone-ones," 
and your friends share your books and magazines, or a special remembrance, 
you will not only share and witness the faith you profess, but you will receive 
much more in return. 

As you collect and send to the National Books Fund your Branch's contri- 
bution to the books fund, or other special funds, you will find yourself a part 






64 Eightieth Annual Report 



of a mighty throng of people who believe that "Even So Send I You" really 
means you. 

If you take the time to look for and find some special need, even though not 
a defined part of your job ; and do something about it— you will have a won- 
derful feeling following its completion — and it's known as a "Blessing." 

You have heard and will hear more about "Changing Patterns." The Church 
Periodical Club has a fine pattern ; it doesn't need changing, it only needs you 
and your participation to enable it to continue its coverage of the world with 
the Ministry of the Printed Page. 

There is so much that needs to be done, and an ever-increasing number of 
fields of service, that go hand in hand with the total program of the Church. 

It has been a privilege to serve as your Director, and my gratitude to you 
for that privilege. Thank vou. 

Ethel Gant, (Mrs. Allen E.) 
Director of Church Periodical Club 



ALTAR WORK AND SERVICE OF EXCHANGE 

Altar Guild membership is a great privilege. It is open to all dedicated 
churchwomen, who are invited by the rector. 

The care and correct placing of sacred vessels and linens are a source of 
worship and joy. Even as Mary and Martha, loved by our Lord so long ago, 
the "Marthas" of today lovingly care for His Altars. 

This year has been a busy one on the diocesan level and in the parishes and 
missions. To report on all activities would take far too long, though some ac- 
complishments must be mentioned. Many articles have been made for parish 
and mission altars. Mrs. Walter Bade of Greensboro has been so helpful in 
securing materials and helping with the making of vestments. Money has been 
contributed to buy materials. This is a continuing need and a worthy project 
for any branch. St. Joseph's Altar Guild, Durham, has had resilvered and con- 
tributed a communion set for use in the chapel at the Home for the Ageing, 
Southern Pines. Linens and hangings have been contributed to this project 
by other branches. Linens has been sent to Germany and Taiwan ; candles 
to Haiti and Japan; old silver to Nags Head; a memorial pall was presented 
in memory of the Rev. Wallace Conrad, St. Andrew's, Greensboro. A call has 
been issued for volunteers to do needlepoint for Swanee Chapel. This project 
is still in the planning stage. Workshops have been held in three District 
meetings and in three branches and at Veda Mecum last June during the 
Episcopal Churchwomen's Conference. Also the Altar at Veda Mecum was cared 
for at this time. Quite a few articles have passed through the service of ex- 
change. All letters of inquiry have been answered. 

It has been a privilege and a joy and spiritually rewarding to serve as your 
Altar Chairman these three years, and to work with the dedicated women 
serving on our Altar Guilds. If you do not have one in your parish, please 
ask your rector to organize one. Junior Altar Guilds are very helpful to train 
our young women in churchmanship. Altar Guilds may sew for missions and 
be a prayer group as well as care for altars. 

Interest in Altar work has increased a great deal in the last two years. May 
God continue to bless you in this great work. The watchwords of Altar Guild 
work: prayer, reverence, punctuality, dependability and dedicated knowledge. 

Josephine King Drake (Mrs. J. W.) 
Chairman of Altar Work and 
Service of Exchange ....

INTERRACIAL COMMITTEE 

With this report my chairmanship of our Interracial Committee is terminated. 
There are several heartening observations, made during our year just ended, to 
which I should like to call attention. 

Most noteworthy is the increased attendance of minority members at the more 
significant meetings within our program. This more representative share in Dis- 
trict Meetings, Annual Meeting, and Summer Conference, where so much know- 
ledge is gained about the Church and the work of Episcopal Churchwomen, 
can only result in more effective promotion of our work. 

It has been encouraging to discover so many members who are interested in 
their jobs, anxious to do them well, and eager to learn more about them. Wider 
acquaintance with women over the Diocese and exchange of ideas that have 
worked, have served to supplement and enrich our study programs. 

I think with gratification of one branch of five women. Five women can 
carry out the purpose to enlist women in Christian fellowship, can study together, 
pray together for the work around the world, and give something for the main- 
tenance of that work. 

I am sincerely grateful for the privilege of having served as a member of our 
Executive Committee. 

Ida Peeler (Mrs. James G.) 
Chairman Interracial Committee 



ANNUAL REPORT— VADE MECUM 

V'ADE MECUM is where the heart is, and the treasure also, according to 
many of the women answering the evaluation sheets presented to them at the 
conclusion of the 1961 Woman's Conference. Delegates and interested Church- 
women come to these green and peaceful foothills each summer to gain perspec- 
tive and knowledge regarding their tasks as branch, district and diocesan officers 
and members. The treasure is considerable because it also includes inspiration 
and re-creation, as well as fellowship. Plans for the 1962 Conference on June 
18-22 provide for the nourishment of our minds and spirits in the old way that 
is familiar to those who come back to Vade Mecum each year — and in new ways 
which we hope will answer the changing needs of all. 

The Episcopal Churchwomen of the Diocese of North Carolina now have a 
delegate on the Diocesan Vade Mecum committee. This representation will 
allow us to participate more fully in the formation of plans for development 
and expansion of our beloved conference center. Plans for new cabins and more 
comprehensive facilities are underway and Churchwomen will be kept in touch 
with burgeoning hopes for Vade Mecum. 

VADE MECUM is where the heart is Bishop Baker will be there as 

Chaplain of the 1962 Conference and will begin and end each day with services 
in the picturesque Chapel of Thanks. The Rev. W. Moultrie Moore, Jr. will 
conduct a series of talks on Personal Worship in answer to the requests for 
more emphasis on this vital part of our religious life. 

VADE MECUM is where the treasure is . . . The Rt. Rev. Henry I. Louttit, 
Bishop of South Florida, will be the keynote speaker at Vade Mecum this summer 
and those who have heard this dynamic church leader tell us that his message, 
centered in the theme of the 1961 Triennial, EVEN SO SEND I YOU, will 
bring new insight to the question of "how we are sent to bear Christ's ministry 
in the world". Eleanor S. Godfrey, our Diocesan president, will conduct daily 
lectures on the work of the women of the church in a series entitled CHANG- 



c6 Eightieth Annual Report 



ING PATTERNS. Here is where we can learn more about the complex, con- 
stantly widening roles of branch, district and diocesan offices, as well as the 
interdependence of these offices with the National Council. 

YADE MECUM is where the heart will find wisdom . . . Varied evening 
programs will transport us to many shores where Christians are engaged in 
struggle and service. The Rev. Richard L. Hicks, Jr. will speak on our missions 
in Africa; the Rev. Robert Turner, HI will give an experienced view of Panama, 
our companion diocese. On one evening there will be a showing of the pilot 
film of the Episcopal Radio-TV Foundation, TRACK THIRTEEN. The Rev. 
Thomas Thrasher will sum up the Conference when he talks on "The Church 
in the World". 

YADE MECUM is where the heart will find friends New and old 

friends will be bound by the peaceful moments of meditation, the stimulating 
hours spent in discussing common, problems, and the hours of leisure in the 
dappled sunlight and quiet dusk. All who have been to Vade Mecum in the 
past, and all who will come there this June to seek growth in wisdom, will find 
a vast treasure. 

Marion C. Salinger (Mrs. Herman) 
Rep. on the Vade Mecum Board 



CHANGING PATTERNS AT KANUGA 

Kanuga is yours! You are Kanuga! 

Only your participation in all phases of the life at Kanuga has made it the 
vital force that it is in the life of our church today. 

The Executive Committee of the Kanuga Board has stated the purpose of 
Kanuga as being "an extension of the Christian Education Departments of the 
owning Dioceses on a summer level". And in keeping with this statement the 
Rev. Capers Satterlee, DD., Chairman of the Kanuga Board of Managers, has 
been in touch with the representatives from the various Dioceses in an effort 
to bring about greater coordination with the Diocesan Camps and Conferences. 
This action is an indication that your Board of Managers is seeking ways and 
means to make the Kanuga program serve the best interests and needs of the 
owning Dioceses. The program at Kanuga is of paramount importance. Interest 
is evidenced by the changes which appear in the 1962 schedule. 

New conferences have been added in order to serve the various interests of 
a greater number of people: a Conference on Christian Witness, a Christian 
Drama Workshop, a conference for our young people who are entering college 
in the fall; then there are the two sessions of Adult Conference, the two Family 
Conferences, the Youth Leadership Conference, and the Young Peoples Con- 
ference—plus four sessions of the camps for girls and the three sessions of the 
camps for boys. These make up the full and varied Kanuga Program. 

All of this is "yours for the asking", and your asking for certain conferences 
has made this program a reality. 

So you can see that truly YOU ARE KANUGA— KANUGA IS YOURS! 



Margaret Darst Smith (Mrs. J. C.) 
Representative on the Kanuga Board

RADIO AND TELEVISION 

Fifteen years after the introduction of television, there is still no sustaining 
program carried on by the Church. The- Radio-Television Foundation believes 
this to be long behind schedule. 

For five years how the Foundation has attempted to formulate a series that 
will capture interest and reflect credit on both the Church and the medium of 
television. Since the Church seeks free time, it has a responsibility to offer 
quality programming in the time available. 

At the General Convention delegates viewed the pilot film in the series to be 
entitled "One Reach One". It received overwhelming acclaim and promises to 
fulfill the looked-for requirements. The next step is to raise funds in order to 
produce the entire series of thirteen films. This first pilot film is being used 
all over the country to capture the interest of church people in order to raise the 
necessary money. 

The theme and title "One Reach One" is the age-old formula of the Christian 
faith. As one is touched by Christianity, he in turn touches another. In other 
words, persons having an experience of the faith are featured and, in the telling 
of their stories, they touch others. 

"Track Thirteen", the initial pilot film of the series, tells of the influence 
spread by Redcap No. 42 in Grand Central Station. So far five other film- 
have been planned: a dramatization of the story ''Elizabeth Burns", known 
through her book, THE LATE LIZ, a feature on spiritual healing telling of 
the ministry of Dr. Alfred Price; the story of the conversion of Dr. Stan Stinson, 
a former atheist who has become head of the Depatment of Religion at Smith 
College; the spiritual leadership of Dave Griffith in a Pittsburg Steel Mill; and 
a fifth one on science and religion concerning the Rev. William Pollard of Oak 
Ridge, Tennessee. 

It will take $400,000 to produce the series. The Radio-TV Foundation hopes 
that all will have an opportunity to see the pilot film, become involved, and — 
through gifts — make it available to others. The average family spends six and 
one-half hours a day in front of its television set; it is easy to reason then that 
since this medium brings into our lives and our homes so much of news, ad- 
venture, sordidness, and mediocrity, that it will also bring the Gospel. This 
will not be possible though without money; and the costs run high. 

It is, therefore, to the deep interest of all Episcopalians to use this means 
to capture the attention of the unchurched and tell the message of the Good 
News of Jesus Christ; it is also a means of revitalizing those who have lapsed 
in interest and of adding vitality to the day-by-day faith of all churchmen. 

With deep gratitude for the support of the past, the yearly contributions made 
to Foundation and the sponsorship of the radio series "Another Chance", we 
ask now for your real attention to this vital area of action. Give us the means 
for this first TV series. Help us to complete the work begun. As Episcopalians, 
we need to present the faith as we have received it. Through TV it can reach 
a wide audience. The opportunity is here; we must act upon it now. Help the 
Radio-TV Foundation by offering your suggestions, your criticisms, and your 
financial support.

Eightieth Annual Report 



DIOCESE OF NORTH CAROLINA 
NEW BOUNDARIES FOR DIOCESAN ORGANIZATION 

The Executive Council on recommendation of the Bishops and present Con- 
vocation Chairmen has fixed the boundaries of Convocations according to the 
map given. 

At the Diocesan Convention in Greensboro, May 8-9, 1962, a new canon, 
numbered XXXIV was passed, the first section of which reads: "The Executive 
Council may, on the recommendation of the Diocesan Bishop, divide the diocese 
into districts to be known as Convocations, and may fix or alter the number 
and boundaries thereof from time to time. The Council shall coordinate such 
action with other diocesan organizations divided into districts to the end that 
the district boundaries of all diocesan organizations shall coincide with those 
of Convocations. 

The Executive Board of the Churchwomen will consider soon the method 
of makine the change to conform to this new Diocesan Canon.
